young and thoughtful

By Pelican_Art  
Played around with the eyes and the light in this. I used the histogram to even out the light and the adjustment brush to sharpen the eyes. This was taken quite close up so no cropping. I think maybe I should have left a little more space to the left of the frame. Comments and suggestions welcome.

There are some excellent tutorials for lightroom on the net and some knowledgeable critics on E2.

Thanks for your comments on my previous uploads. Hope you like this duo.
Thanks for looking

Hi Lissa.
I think v1 is just perfect, no need for more space to the left.
I was looking through the gallery when i spotted this thunbnail and instantly recognized her from your previous uploads and thought i bet this is one of yours?
Your photography seems to have come on leaps and bounds since you were on here
last summer! look forward to more of the same. Excellent work Smile
Best regards Ricky.
