Trying the portrait mode with the XZ1 and there were a few clones here, I am happy with this one and the clarity was a real surprise.

Cam shot is uploaded for any ideas and hope that there is someone who will do a mod for me.

Thanks for the Mod Mike and I have just reworked it again just cloned out the light fitting this time and gave her a little more colour, I think that my closer crop works?

Thanks for looking in again.

Hi Ian, I did a mod in Photoshop. I copied the background layer, used the dodge tool to brighten up the teeth and eyes. I then went into filter > render > lighting effects > soft light. Hope you like it.

Hi Chen

A great shot if a little dark onthe top right.

I have uploaded two mods, the first where I have lightened that top corner and a slight make over. The second being much tighter and allow the young lady's beauty to do all the talking. As the download is so small it's never easy to crop in and then blow up. Always a good idea to stand back and shoot, then move in slowly for the close up shots, That way the person gets used to you being there.

Hope you like them...

Just added a slightly warmer mod on the close up.
