Your Daughter is very photogenic. This, and the others are good shots, however, the white balance from your camera is producing a skin tone with a heavy Magenta cast. Ive uploaded a mod, which is pretty much the same work as I usually do with these shots. Try using a simple grey card (cheap to buy in a photo store); shoot in RAW; include the grey card in the first shot, then when you process the RAW, use the grey card as the white balance reference by clicking the white balance tool on it. You will be quite surprised by the results.



Hope this is helpful,



Regards


Willie

Hi Dilys.....glad you like the mod,......I use Adobe PSE 8, where you can apply a 'Gaussian' blur to selected areas (the B/G)., & under the
'Filter' tool, there's a 'Diffuse Glow' that can be applied to selected areas (the face)........I also applied the 'Levels' control to the hair to
'lift' it a bit, & sharpened the eyes a wee bit !!!!......took about 20minutes to get the final image !!!

Hope all that makes sense !!.......Happy New Year Dilys..............

regards....Keith.
