Yet another of Megan in her wedding hat....well,it used to be my Mum's Wink
I used a very different method of processing,lots of desaturation, some soft focus layers too & no textures either !!
It works for me,albeit it will take me some time to get used to it.
One I shall commit to the printer I think on some nice thick matt paper....maybe Wink

One softbox & the silver side of the triflector opposite.

Well it's different guys...your thoughts would be most welcome.
Thanks as always for dropping by.

Sounds good to me a terrific image Janet. If I may be so bold a s to suggest it has a very classic (and classy) 1940's feel to it. truly beautiful.

I like it Janet, only bit that doesn't sit right for me is it looks a little too porcelain like around the eyes.

Thanks all.
Good point Nick,I did want her skin to look rather flat I think is the word I'm looking for,almost featureless but with features if you get my drift.It is a process I can mess with,loads of layers as you can imagine & always difficult to know where & when to stop....if at all Wink
The look I'm trying to get is that of a porcelain doll but with skin Wink

I watched a you tube video with that recently, if I can remember what it's called I will send you a link. Keep up the idea it's working just needs fine tuning.

Meant to say I like the new lighter look to the images Wink

She's been at the atropine again Janet Wink

A lovely feel to this one - and the eyes work wonderfully.

The result is beautiful.
Being a redhead the natural route for me would be to go for a gold filter
being an 'autumn' myself.
You can see the brown of the hat has been cooled down along with her hair.
However with the pearls the cooling effect seems to work with her lovely skin.
I suppose you could say this is heading for a 'high key' look which is truly lovely.
