Stunning portrait, has an almost surreal quality to it. Love those eyes.

Good portrait K, but looks a little lacking in colour on her face, looks like she has no nose.

This is very good indeed.
I love those big softbox catchlights.

I might have tried to soften the skin down a bit. Perhaps adding some smart blur to the blue channel would work quite well.

OK I knew these eyes were yours, not seen very often but when they are, POW. You are one beautiful woman K and should reallly upload more self portraits, we all know the kids are a great bunch and you photograph then so well but sometimes we adults want something where we can sit back and say WOW! Going by the highlights the softboxes are working a treat and have brought out all that fine detail in these sultry eyes. OK said enough I'm off, still working away but feeling a lot better for seeing this.

Good shot K. I sort of wish I hadn't posted the goldfinger one now (linked to above by Boyd). Yours looks much cleaner. She's got great eyes as, I'm sure, anyone who saw her on our stand at Focus will agree.

Hi K,

Thought I'd just have a go myself, and to be honest, although there is a lot of noise on the blue channel, (not unusual), softening it doesnt really make that much difference to the end ressult, so all in all, I think you should be more than happy with your picture as it is.

7 Mar 2006 9:43AM
Thanks Jules for taking time to do that and thanks all for the comments and Roy for the mod too. K.

The eyes are juts stunning, K. I love the pose and expression too. The only thing that niggles a little is the line fo the nose. Seems to lack some definition, and it gets 'lost' a bit in the rest of the face. but noone else seems to have mentinoned it - so it's probably just me.

Hope you're well - paths haven't crossed for a while...

Nothing like shooting yourself in thefoot.....I stand by every word K, but have to admit I do think she looks like you, I trust this is the same model as in WARNING, which I also thought was you!. Right woman get me out of this hole now, get the camera out, hit the self timer and get the mug shot up here quick!!LOL Had the magnifier out to check your eyes out on the PF page photo....hmm, still think your a stunner. Right I'm off now before this hole gets any bigger.

8 Mar 2006 12:05AM
LOL Victor! I'll see what I can do.

Hiya Steve! It was lit with the intention of creating no shadow etc. and this had the effect of minimising the nose, bless her she is a stunner but has quite a prominent bridge so I thought by not drawing attention to it her eyes may stand out more but it probably has had the opposite effect ;-0 Nice to see you again and thanks everyone for all your comments off to find Victor a shovel to help him fill this hole in ....

8 Mar 2006 5:27AM
Haha! Try this one Victor - the animated version :o)
(Wish I had time for more of these!!)

Couldn't resist a small "eye" mod. Think I created an unintentional colour shift too (whoops!)

OK last comment, promise, Matt must be the medication but I'm rather moved by these pouting lips and crazy eyes, now where did I leave the straight jacket, got a nice shiney one, quality craftmanship, honest, if you want one K. LOL!!

K, out of interest, can you remember how big and how far waway those softboxes were?

8 Mar 2006 11:43PM
Thanks Sara.
Victor I've already got one, Pete supplies them with the moderator badge Wink

Jules I think I was about 3 ft from the lights and they are huge, but I also used a tri reflector.

Nicely done, like the slight highlight on the nose which seems to add shape to the face.
