PoV etc. is nice in this one. At least I can read the text easy this time Smile Dina always has some great expressive looks in her images George and here's another one with brill eye contact. The lighting appears to have given this a very strong visual look - to the facial area - but it appears to be somewhat bronze toned. Was that the intention? Whatever you did in the PP has also given her extreme grey spots on 3 sections of her lips. Not keen on the under garment being in the shot either George/Dina as it seems so out of blend. The backlighting for me is too strong in this one because the hair looks too overlit.
Thanks 4 the share Smile

Hi Carlos. I have always struggled with the difference in how the images appear on ePz as opposed to what they look like in PS and even just viewing the image in a web browser on my monitor. I calibrate my monitor weekly but I can see the difference viewing the ePz version side by side with either PS, Bridge, or the browser with the same file as I upload to ePz. The tones always appear darker on ePz. Dina does have bronze like skin but sometimes I change it trying to get the image to appear normal on ePz. This time I didn't change the tone for the ePz upload.

I used a method on the lips that I saw in a PS YouTube tutorial. Paint black over the lips and blend with soft light. I'll try another method from now on.
Thanks for the comments and if you have any tips on the upload issue, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks John. I'm going to keep working this until I figure it out. I think it has something to do with the website's interpretation of the colourspace. If I cannot fix it any other way, I may build a photoshop action that adjusts it when I reduce to jpeg.

A beautiful expressive face Dina and superb eye contact with the lens.
I too agree about the back lighting being a little too strong, it does make it look as if the hair is a bit over sharpened but nevertheless, I think it's a lovey shot and deserved a lot more attention.
Carlos's mod is excellent and the removal of the bra strap has improved the overall appearance of the shot.
Good idea of yours George regarding the 'action'.
