    Thanks so much for the helpful comments...apologies for the delay in response I've only just got back onshore.

    Paulbroad - Thanks for the tip about metering - I hadn't realised I had done that so I'll have to try without the spot metering and see how the photos turn out.

    Philo - Thanks for the mod. I know what you mean about the eye being a little soft - I think it's my technical ability and shallow dof, although I do struggle to get things really sharp with my camera (Sony A350) regardless what lense I use. My friend has a Nikon D90 and it seems to focus much better and provide clearer images.

    Banehawi - Thanks for the mods and help regarding white balance and the link. When I get a chance to look properly I may message you with some queries if that's okay.

    Niknut - Thanks for the comment and mods. I've definitely noticed an improvement in my portrait shots by using sites like this so hopefully I can keep improving and take everyone's comments onboard.

    Newmanp - I haven't tried this image in mono, but I'll have a look. I think the reason I didn't do it was because I thought with her skin being pale and her hair blonde their wouldn't be much contrast in the image and it may look a bit washed out. Like I said I'll have a look and see how the image comes across. Is there something I can do to make the mono image really stand out?

    Imagemaster - Thanks for the tips - I'll definitely try the different lens and lighting you suggested and I'll get Laura to read your makeup tips!

    Again...apologies for the delay in response and thanks for the comments.

    Thanks a lot for the comments, they are much appreciated. I'll try using a larger dof and I am thinking about taking the shot outdoors as I couldn't get a decent lighting setup indoors. I'm still not too sure about lighting setup for portraits i.e. whether its best to light from the front or side....and I'm conscious about having shadows on her face. If any of you have any tips please let me know.

    Thanks again,
