Pin-up Parasol

By rah    
OK this is definitely the last one from the retro pin-up inspired shots. Styling, model, pic and manipulation - me. I'm still not sure if I've got the look of the pictures quite right - I used gaussian blurring, increased saturation and grain to achieve this. Taken outside - natural light. If anyone knows how this is supposed to be done, I'd love to know! Thanks

wonderful shot lovely model nice crop the only thing I can see wrong IMO is maybe a bit too much light on the back of her left arm but I am no expert and it is still a very nice shot

True, cantona, it does seem to blend to the background.
I'll give it a shot... Smile

Lighten the background slightly and it solves the arm problem (although I don't actually see there being a problem)

Minor detail with the arm - like the background as is - adds warmth and is more period, as I believe you intended. Smile
Ps: Bigger is better methinks Wink

Thank you kaybee - think yours is better. Right about the arm - didn't pick it up but it does merge into the background somewhat, thanks, Rachel

Hi Thanks for allowing a mod
Softened the skin, addded highlights and colour to the hair removed the colour cast from the face and whitened the background

Thanks Barry John
