She is lovely and you have captured an excellent thoughtful expression. On my screen the skin tones are a bit pale and the soft focus very much in evidence. I think I would warm up the skin tones a bit and adjust or retake this pose with better focus eg hair and clothes, and only soften the face a little in your software. A

She has a natural beauty. A great pose but agree with Arthur about the sharpness.

Good atmospheric shot - it shows you don't always need eye contact - Brian

Its a good effort Michelle. The pouse is very nice. You dont tell the difference between V1 and V2, but as far as I can see, V1 is softer than V2.


I think that you have overdone the softness effect in both, - dont know how youve appli8ed it, - lets us know. You should not soften eyes or lips when doing this, - leave the sharp.

She can be composed a little more to the right, off centre, and with some colour to add some warmth to her skin tones, and a judicious combination of softening and sharpening she can look better, - mod loaded.

Stunning portrait, of a stunning girl !!!!......great 'pose', & beautifully photographed.....I think the very slight 'softness' in V1 only adds to her 'femininity'....love it !

I've done a fairly simple mod. for your consideration.........just added a 'glow' to the whole image !!....it's diffused the B/G a bit more, but more importantly it's
added even more 'femininity' (not that she needs it !), & created a nice 'aura' to the whole shot !......finally added a thin black border to hold everything together !!

Hope you like it ??.....regards....Keith.
