    First, just want to say very nice picture! Very seductive Grin.

    Secondly, I like how the dress even though simple and white still keeps interest instead of it bieng just flat as these things can look. Well done.

    Quote:Welcome to EPZ Ross.

    This is a nice shot is nicely exposed and lit. The composition can be improved, as she is a little too low in the frame (aligning her eyes with the third rule), and I wonder if it would have benn better taken in portrait format.

    I have loaded 2 mods with the following incorporated:

    Crop to get her closer to a third composition. If shot in portrait mode, the hair would have survived.

    Sharpened the eyes and hair, - you can lose detail unless you sharpen after you re size for the web.

    Reduced red a little.

    Applied a small amount of skin softening in Mod1, and further softening using diffuse glow in mod2 for a different look.

    Hope this is helpful,



    Thanks for that, yeah the rule of thirds would have done this justice upon reflection. This was the first model I did a shoot with so I was kind of nervous and firing shot off like nobody's business!

    Thanks for the help!
