The smile





My first true portrait. The model is a friend from work and I have to admit she is quite striking. She preferred the mono so that was the one posted

Re: The smile

Nice picture Russell The highlights on her cheeks and forehead look a little hot on my laptop, (due to the conversion?), but the laptop screen is not very good so it might just be my kit.

Re: The smile

I agree with Graham on the highlights. Not keen on the top of her head cut off and I would sharpen the eyes. Lovely portrait and I am sure she is pleased.

Re: The smile

I like this very much.

but

re cropping ... personally I think the top is fine but I'd give her another half inch at the bottom!

Re: The smile

... either that or go the other way:







EDIT ... I sharpened the eyes [as colinmac suggested] and relaxed everything else. Hope you don't mind.
