Gemma as a Flower

By JackAllTog    
This is Gemma from a few months ago, two more versions of before and after processing. I'm more than happy for any comments on why you might like one more than another etc.
I'm trying for a look i might expect to see in a magazine.

As a novice v1 for me because you have cloned out (removed) the light stand foot bottom right and the other artefact top right. I think v1 is still a little under exposed. If this was a one or two light set up I think your light sources need to come in closer or need the power increasing. IMHO there is too much shadow. Most magazine shoots, unless going for the look are a lot lighter. Certainly on the right path though. Regards

V1 is obviously the after? Smile Good work IMHO, the only thing that causes me any concern and again it's being exception picky is the amount of bounced highlights coming off the prop, especially on the lower leaf. But as I said this is being really picky again.....

Many thanks for all the votes & comments - very much appreciated. Picky is good, at the end of the day its the little things that make the difference.

Well worked with the processing Stuart, some work would be needed to remove the stray hair near to flower if it was to go into a magazine

a thoughtful attempt which results in a second glance - points made above need your attention but generally a good result.
