Sorry I deleted the first upload, but did so before anyone voted, it didn't look right so here it is again.
This is another one of my favourites of Amelia,
v.1 being a crop of v.2. Hope you enjoy looking.
Thanks for the comments and clicks on my last few posts, back to my portraits now as I have many to share with you.

Two excellent images, Fran, very well captured. Carol
two cracking captures fran brilliant detail wonderful lighting v2 for me a stunner nice one
Stunning images, I love these much more than dead flowers!!!!!
First class work
Excellent images Fran. You do these brilliantly. Love them both............Sandy
Great to see your lovely images again Fran
Very competent work Fran. The left eye in No. 1 does appear to me to be too dominant and therefore I prefer no. 2.
Fabulous portrait work Fran, you really excel at this type of photography, I can see these images hung on the wall of a posh hair salon
Ditto everything said above, V1 is stunning.
Superb lighting once again Fran. Great eye capture and good pose.
great image, lighting is spot on.
I like the look on her face.
A beautiful portrait Fran, good lighting and nice skin tones, I like the pose too.
Much prefer the original V2 Fran - great pose and looks good. On my monitor in V1 the crop has brought out very large areas of noise in the skin.
Can't argue with that Brian, 'twas a massive crop.
Thanks to all for your comments and for putting it in the RC gallery.
V2 is wonderful all around, love that as well as the crop--such soulful eyes!
V2 gets my vote
Two wonderful portraits Fran - V1 is my fav !
Lovely work Fran
Out of my league professional work Fran !
Dont give up on the experimentals though x
Superb !.....faultless piece of work !!!!!.....such clarity, such impact !
This is why I don't do portraiture !!!.
Superb yet again fran, like both version.
Fantastic presentation, V1 for me although both are wonderful, Patti
Both superb Fran, lovely detail, skin tones and colour but I too prefer V2
Two nice portrait images, Fran! Good details, expression, tones, light and composition!
Wonderful pictures of a very beautiful young lady. I have uploaded two images that take the picture both ways. Hope you like them.
Thank you Robert, I like both your mods but with a preference for the lighter one.
It would be nice to know how you achieved this.
I do appreciate your time and your comment.
I'm glad you liked the mods and the lighter one wasn't to hard.
This is all done in photoshop:-
Added an all white blank layer abd changed blend to soft light.
Open a layer mask on this layer and painted back the parts you don't want too bright ie. Face, hair and body.
Then added a warm photo filter layer with an inverted layer to again paint in where I want the warmer colours.
Last opened birightness/contrast and push the contrast right up.
Hope this helps....
Many thanks for the comments, votes & mods, always well appreciated and thanks Robert for your 'method' I'll give this a whirl.
Night night all, sleep well.
Excellent set. Lovely detail. Paul
Really striking images both cropped and full. Keep em coming
Love the expression and good details in this Fran, good work.
Definitely V1 an outstanding portrait shot
Couldn't resist having a 'play' with this lovely girl !......tried to make it a bit more 'ethereal' & perhaps a bit more 'feminine' ??????
Not a criticism, just my paltry thoughts on your lovely shot !.
Thanks for the Mod Keith, never thought of trying that filter on my portraits but it looks like I might be using it from time to time in the future.
Many thanks to all for clicks, comments and modifications, all very much appreciated.
Two great captures good work.
Simply superb, Fran - V1 is absolutely stunning. Wonderful skin tones and eyes in both.
I like V1 so much because sometimes litte is more!
