Have always struggled a bit processing portrait shots, so thought id work with an old shot which didnt quite turn out the way i wanted it too
, V1 is the B&W finished version, Ver 2 is the color, and V3 is the as is from Camera.
1) So on the original file, i tried toning down the shine on the nose and around the eyes
2) Did a quick select of the background (part of her T-shirt bottom lower left) and blacked it out.
Any feedback on what else could have been done or done differently etc and any other feedback on the pic as a whole is always welcome as usual
