I think the colours are great. Eye contact superb, beautiful model, my only critisism is the skin a tad too overworked. Just a personal opinion. Still gets a vote.

This is special.....superb processing work. I like the images to have a little "less" touching up, more natural, but I have to admire the work. Its incredible....superb image!

Thanks everyone for your comments, much appreciated. I wish i could upload the really high resolution version as you could see that I retained all the pores and skin texture, most of the retouching here is in reshaping the light. On client work unfortunately it usually demands more retouching than I personally like - often the final image is destined for a 8ft window poster or billboard, at those sort of sizes they need to ensure every detail is considered. You won't see retouching work on my photojournalism work as I disagree with this, I will be posting some soon.
