This was originally posted as a variant back in May. But having seen this variation pop up on my screensaver it made me realise that its actually a stronger crop than the original post, in my opinion.
I'll post the original as a variant and you can let me know what you think.

Incidentally, this was one of my first studio shots and was trying the blown hair effect with a a rather poor hairdryerSmile

Hi Colin I think your original shot is much better than the v1 mod. Because the nearest eye is not as sharp as the furthest eye it looks a little awkward for such a large close-up. Also the original image was quite a wide angle shot to get in some background, at 43mm the lens has exaggerated the size of the things closes to the camera and this has made her nose look larger than it is in real life. This does not show on v2. I think your original post was more flattering for the model. So v2 for me! Hope you don’t mind! Wayne

Don't mind one bit, Wayne. I appreciate the feedback. I'm ok with the focus on the left eye, but I see your point about the distortion.

Kinda on the same wavelength as Wayne bit there is potential in V2 I felt Smile so had a play.

I like both Colin, - and V1 does work. The fesatures and exaggeration are someting that you can handle with a different pose, - but the eyes are nice in V1.

I tried a mod on V2, with some discreet (hopefully) use of the Liquify tool, and another on V1

good detailed portraits though the composition and presentation of v2 works for me.
