Trying out a different technique.
Tried to keep the skin tones more natural without a heavy blur. Also used a photo filter 'underwater'to give a more muted look.
For the eyes, a screen layer for the whites and a colour dodge for the iris.
Hope the eyes aren't overdone, let me know what you think of the processing.

Great portrait.like the distant expression.
Great! What have you done to the eyes (obviously not overdone!!)?
i think the eyes look great,good pose, like it alot.
Are you watching the neighbours? lol
The eyes have it...
Thanks for all your comments..
This is beautifully done, the eyes look very natural..she is a natural beauty.
Would you believe she was 40, never.
Late twentys from this image i would say.
Bloody creep she says
The wonders of PS.
You cheat Cathy,
i'll get you a box of your favorite chocolates at the Focus meet for being honest.
Thanks for the mod Kaybee, the shirt looks much better.
Thanks to Roys mod you look like a teenager now.
You take a damn fine picture woman.....and if these are self portraits - you should be in front of the camera as well
what a lovely natural looking shot!
not overdone at all IMO
Still beautiful Cathy. Ron.
well I think the eyes are spot on, clear as crystal and that overall focal distance serves well over the rest of the shot too.
I like the one you've put in your personal info area too.
Lovely Cathy !!!
Nice & natural Cathy,I prefer the pose of this image.Nice clarity in your eyes & I detect a touch of a naughty glint there too ;-0
That lippy in Roy's mod suits you!
Like her glance and expressión, transmit calm.
Thanks for all your comments...
Love the eyes,very nice shot again.
Thanks for the mods Kevski, like the spot light one...

Nope...41 maybe, but not 40.
Eyes are better - more punch to them, but can't help but feel it's a little dark and flat. It's also got a blue colour cast to it.
Composition and pose is great.
Did a little mod...and no I haven't made you look like plastic fantastic.
Kevski's first mod is excellent..best one of all the mod's IMHO
Like the naturalness(?) of this.
Looks good Cathy but Ian's mod has a bit more punch if you know what I mean.
Thanks for the mod Ian ,looks really good.
Hayley , glad you like the eer hem , naturalness..
The colour correction is a bit clunky as I've never really got on with CS2's approach. Whilst it sorts your white shirt it makes you look a bit red in the face, but it was the best I could do.
good portrait work
great portrait work, the eyes work well....
Still as beautiful as you were when you were 2 years old with those fantastic curls. Not a single tooth filling - EVER. Love you zillions, Dad. x x x
Dad ...you are sooo embarrassing...
Great picture very natural look, Dads are ment to be embarrasing its what they do best.
