Very competent work Fran. The left eye in No. 1 does appear to me to be too dominant and therefore I prefer no. 2.

Fabulous portrait work Fran, you really excel at this type of photography, I can see these images hung on the wall of a posh hair salon

Much prefer the original V2 Fran - great pose and looks good. On my monitor in V1 the crop has brought out very large areas of noise in the skin.

Can't argue with that Brian, 'twas a massive crop.
Thanks to all for your comments and for putting it in the RC gallery.

Hi Fran

Wonderful pictures of a very beautiful young lady. I have uploaded two images that take the picture both ways. Hope you like them.

Thank you Robert, I like both your mods but with a preference for the lighter one.
It would be nice to know how you achieved this.
I do appreciate your time and your comment.

Hi Fran

I'm glad you liked the mods and the lighter one wasn't to hard.
This is all done in photoshop:-
Opened image.
Added an all white blank layer abd changed blend to soft light.
Open a layer mask on this layer and painted back the parts you don't want too bright ie. Face, hair and body.
Then added a warm photo filter layer with an inverted layer to again paint in where I want the warmer colours.
Last opened birightness/contrast and push the contrast right up.

Hope this helps....

Many thanks for the comments, votes & mods, always well appreciated and thanks Robert for your 'method' I'll give this a whirl.

Night night all, sleep well.

Couldn't resist having a 'play' with this lovely girl !......tried to make it a bit more 'ethereal' & perhaps a bit more 'feminine' ??????

Not a criticism, just my paltry thoughts on your lovely shot !.WinkGrin

Thanks for the Mod Keith, never thought of trying that filter on my portraits but it looks like I might be using it from time to time in the future.

Many thanks to all for clicks, comments and modifications, all very much appreciated.
