Soft

By ukuwi
I know that there are those amongst you that have an intense dislike for soft photo's, so please accept my most humble apologies if you stumble here by accident, all comments welcome and appreciatedSmile
PS: the missus made me pull the last one of her down as she felt it made her look tawdry and cheap, so it had to goSmile

I know nothing of portraiture and wouldn't claim to do so, but this in my eyes is just simply stunning! The softness makes it all the more special.....I'm inspired, well done to you Sir!

It may be soft, but it's definitely not "tawdry and cheap", so this one will stay, I imagine? I quite like the effect. Not sure about the finger, but the rest I like a lot. Classy.

Me too... top marks for everything except the finger.

Very nice model, and the post processing is done really well.

An excellent portrait. Soft focus effects are all to often over done or used to mask a bad shot, but in this case it is applied to very good effect.

Softness just right - not overdone. Really nice. The pose with the finger is something a little different and I think it works very well.

LOL - Re Keith: I think that once you get the bulls out of the china store, you'll be fine. I like the soft look on this one. Good angle and expression too. No complaints here!

She was unhappy that I had made it look like she was a pin-up girl and asked me to take it down, so I did, thanks for your commentsSmile
