Really is a stunning image very well taken and a stunner of a model.

Looking at it again with the tones being so light would it look better if the vertical shadow to the right of her head was removed as it pulls my eyes away from her face a little.

Should be photo of the week I reckon.

Nothing to it reallySmile
No, the exposure itself is relatively good, although I regret not clearing the background a little more.
I made two or three different tif files from my raw file, pushing different details and colors, and then painting them in using layer masks. then, I focused on colors, finding the right amount of desaturation, without making the skin grey, and the hair unnaturally red.
The difficult part of this was making it bright without burning the white. I tried a couple of "fog" layers, and masked them, painting in areas. Then, easy vignetting twice, and being careful not to lose details in the skin and hair.
A little skin retouch had to be done, removing a couple of zits and softing the skin carefully.
I added a tint of blue to the eyes, but again, too much would have made this looking strange...
the leaves...I wanted the same amount of color as the hair, making it more realistic, without it being the focusarea.
If I am not mistaken, I added some gaussian blur to the background, to get the branches a little more obscure.
Not sure if this gave any idea at all, but feel free to askSmile

Now as much as I understand the theory of all of that, I don't think I could ever do ANY of it without a serious crash course in PS! Cheers though. In my faves so I know where to look when my skills eventually improve lol!
