My Little Girl 2

By BurntOut  
Trying a high key thing. Overexposed by 1 stop in camera and pushed another in 1.5 C1LE.
Natural light from a window. 50mm prime at f4, 1/80s.
Not sure if this works. All critique welcome. Seems to have lost a bit of sharpness.

A very cute kid!

A little washed out alright, - softness is attractive except for eyes. Loaded a mod, - hope you like it.

Thanks for all your comments, and especially thanks to Willie and Jason who took the time to upload mods.

Can I ask you both what sharpening settings you used on the eyes?

Neil, - I used the Smart Sharpen tool in PS CS2 at a 45% setting.

For Unsharp Mask, try Radius = 1, Threshold = 3, and Amount = 400%, - then start decreasing the Amount until it looks good.

Thanks very much Willie. I'll have another play with this and re-post.
Thanks also for the mod Dionne. This is my fist E2 upload and as far as I'm concerned it's already paid for itself!
