Loaded 2 mods.

Midtones looks a little flat, - and perhaps you were going for a blueish look?

Crop leaving some more room on the rhs would give her space to look into.

Would make a good B&W also.

Regards

Willie

Thanks for the feedback, Willie and the mods. I love the B&W version.
The make up was fairly heavily applied to give her face a white, almost geisha look. I wasn't overly keen on the eye and lip colours so was trying to play them down. I did consider cropping and widening the canvas, but decided against as I'd used that technique on a few recent uploads and felt I would be falling into a formulaic approach - however in hindsight it would have been best.
I appreciate your time and Miptog's
Colin
