Here you go babe, have your first award ^^

You need to seperate the cap from the background with some tone tweaks (see me in my office!), apart from that stunning and lovely expression...did I really give birth to such a gorgous daughter?

Welcome to ePHOTOzine. Great pic but needs a few tweaks in PS. Ask to Ste' to help you, he knows more than KT.

Beautiful and moody expression and good choice of background too. You've had some great advice on here but I'd also add a little bit of catchlight in your eyes.

Great start.

HI Jazz,

Nice as a first shot, but watch your angles as it looks like your leg finishes at the knee.
