Completely blurred face Mario, - are you sure you intended that, or perhaps uploaded the wrong shot?
Im assuming its an error unless you say different.

I am very surprised because on mine is showing sharp. Or perhaps for me it is sharp and it's not. The original is blurred.

Yes, the face is veryblurred. The eyes are on the half way line and you have lots of space above the head. You do seem to present portraits like this and it doesn't work for me. You need to crop to the top of her hood, maybe a little lower. The eyes then move to the top third and the bakance is very much better.

Willie, your mod is very professionally. Honestly for me it was sharp but for experts it's something different. Is it possible to write to me and give an idea how you done it. Thanks in advance.

Paul, Regarding the eyes that they are on the half way line I agree with you. About the space above the head I am not totally 100% with your opinion. I almost kept the same distance as the left side. Still I respect your opinion and look forward to put it into practice.

Many thanks Willie and Paul for your constructive critique from which I learn my mistakes.

You must produce what you want, that is how it should be, but I can assure you that, if being judge in competition you would need to compose differently. If your customers like this presentation, so be it.

One thing is certain, correction to dustfim's original shot modifies the light falling on the subject's forehead. Sharpness is increased, but I think it modifies the direction of the gaze and introduces something harsher in this portrait, whereas the previous one was soft. I'd like to stick with the idea we are looking at an actress, as she would appear on stage, and not at an ordinary portrait, with all its classical attributes. Right, you'll say "you're entitled to your opinion." Ok, I like it (as I did the previous actress shot). Paul

The correction is part of an inter exchange being dome real time between the two of us to show that the original image is too out of focus, and not intended to correct anything Parob, as its deliberately oversharpened, as my comment alludes to. Please not Marios comment that the original was blurred, and likely, imo, too much so to be recovered by any amount of sharpening.
