A very lovely model. I like the shot though I am not sure that so much canvas/bg need to be shown. My only critique is that it seems as if there is not enough light to accent her features. I did a mod to show what a little more lighting in the right place can do for the shot.

Thanks for the mod Greg.

The reason for the large bg is for the client to put text on it - I should have mentioned that.

Unless the client requires it otherwise, I personally prefer to keep skin natural looking, but if they wanted perfect skin then I hope I could manage something like yours. I appreciate your detailed description of the method.

After looking long and hard at the differences, I think you are right about the levels, contrast and brightness.

Many thanks for your input and mod
