Seems to me that your title doesn't do your model justice. To my eye she looks a far more natural and to my eye interesting model than Amy, so why the comparison.

ps I know it is tongue in cheek, but it seems a bit harsh.

I think Jen is truly beautful model, good image.
I added my mod, I thought she looked abit moody in the image and I made a moody B&W mod

I like the model and pose Dennis, but this one is quite overexposed, with the result being rather harsh. You last shot of this lady was spot on.

Not sure if this was a home set up or studio, but either the camera exposure or the lights are set to overexpose.

Not a huge amount you can do in post processing, as information thats not in the image cant be recovered.

Ive tried a few mods, the basic change is a reduction in exposure, - but I would also suggest different crops that might work better for this.

There is a bit to much light and overexposure on the right side of the face. Flash at low power could have help to offset the uneven light. Setting up more adequate lighting for the studio will help to level out the overall lighting effects.

There are things that can be done in processing to help. For one you can offset the overexposure by selecting that area and filling it in with flesh tones sampled from the areas that are not over exposed. The Background is also uneven and somewhat erratic in the tone levels. In this instance I would simply select the BG, sample what color you like and then use the paint bucket to fill in. I like setting it to 25% opacity for filling. Check out the mod I did and you can see what I am talking about.

@funguy The only reason I chose my title was simply because on my last upload of Jen it appeared next to an image of Amy and that gave me the idea. It was never meant to be offensive to ethier Jen or Amy.

Agreed Jen is a stunner in her own right, also agreed the lighting too harsh resulting from overexposure on our right as we see the image. Jen deserves anpther upload.
Love the background, did you use a gel or was it the paper? x
