This is the original Jpeg before I used portrait professional I promised to put it up earlier but was busy
I think I actually prefer this....Portrait Pro has a tendancy to make people look completely unnatural. Both shots are lovely, pretty model, nicely lit, like the angle, expression and so on. The basis of the image is absolutely sound. But PP tends to over smooth and warm a touch too much and actually, from the original here, I reckon with a touch of just basic Photoshop changes, this could be a much more pleasing effect than that of the PP image. Some cloning here and there, just to remove a few blemishes, a tiny touch of eye lightening, some very minimal skin smoothing and leaving the tones almost as they are...maybe a touch more contrast, but not much. I reckon this would work a treat.
If you have Lightroom, you could always put the image through that and use the skin softening tool in that....is simple, very subtle and gives really nice, pleasing results.
Please don't take this as criticism....its not meant to be. I always try and back up what I have to say. But there is potential in images like this and you have a beautiful model that should be allowed to shine as she is naturally. Over processing with something like PP tends to take this away and makes them look more like the generic poster women you see in magazines and billboards....and lets face it, NO woman looks like that lol!
Thanks for the comments the model was unprepared for this shoot no make up whatso ever I have lightroom but have never learned how to use it probably next project
