Good portrait K, but looks a little lacking in colour on her face, looks like she has no nose.

This is very good indeed.
I love those big softbox catchlights.

I might have tried to soften the skin down a bit. Perhaps adding some smart blur to the blue channel would work quite well.

Otherwise...stunning.

OK I knew these eyes were yours, not seen very often but when they are, POW. You are one beautiful woman K and should reallly upload more self portraits, we all know the kids are a great bunch and you photograph then so well but sometimes we adults want something where we can sit back and say WOW! Going by the highlights the softboxes are working a treat and have brought out all that fine detail in these sultry eyes. OK said enough I'm off, still working away but feeling a lot better for seeing this.

Take care LUV VICTOR XX

Hi K,

Thought I'd just have a go myself, and to be honest, although there is a lot of noise on the blue channel, (not unusual), softening it doesnt really make that much difference to the end ressult, so all in all, I think you should be more than happy with your picture as it is.

The eyes are juts stunning, K. I love the pose and expression too. The only thing that niggles a little is the line fo the nose. Seems to lack some definition, and it gets 'lost' a bit in the rest of the face. but noone else seems to have mentinoned it - so it's probably just me.

Hope you're well - paths haven't crossed for a while...

Right woman get me out of this hole now, get the camera out, hit the self timer and get the mug shot up here quick!!LOL Had the magnifier out to check your eyes out on the PF page photo....hmm, still think your a stunner. Right I'm off now before this hole gets any bigger.

LOL Victor! I'll see what I can do.

Hiya Steve! It was lit with the intention of creating no shadow etc. and this had the effect of minimising the nose, bless her she is a stunner but has quite a prominent bridge so I thought by not drawing attention to it her eyes may stand out more but it probably has had the opposite effect ;-0 Nice to see you again and thanks everyone for all your comments off to find Victor a shovel to help him fill this hole in ....
