Updated note 23/02/06, after given critique.

In this photo I blurred the skin and sharpened the eyes and the eyebrows. This way I think there was less distraction from the beautiful eyes of Erica, being the subject.
Including the skin textures would have lessened the effect. This is only my opinion, and accept all crtique given, well yes could be I exaggerated a bit.
I am sending the origional crop in WS for you to see, and will appreciate other versions to mine.
Good way for me to improve.
Thank you all.

The composition is great, the eyes magnificent and the framing nice. Don't know what you did with her skin but IMO that's a big minor...love to see the same crop with her natural skin tone and texture.

Je pense la même chose que OWO... La post production faite à sa peau est très dérangeante.

PErfect eyes.. :)

Very good composition, her eyes are very nice. However, I don't like the effect you did on her skin. Its too unnatural and overdone I feel. It looks like wet clay, no wrinkles.

Interesting POV. Very, very nice DOF.

The eye of girl is fantastic! Good composition. Great shot.

Hi Salvu,

Very nice composition and indeed beautiful eyes captured well. The angled face makes the shot interesting. Also for me the blurring of the face doesn't work, makes it look artificial and takes away from the natural beauty. I do feel the original photo needs PP to deal with the blowouts and some skin irregularities. Stil, trying these things out is all part of the learning fun of (digital) photograpy.


Fantastic eyes there! Maybe you should consider using Neat Image instead of blurring the skin, it comes out a bit too "artificial"...

very good composition with good details & colors. well done. TFS.

Salva...I like the eyes, the composition and the pov...the tilt of her head makes the photo interesting, but like the others IMO the blurring is too much.
Thanks for sharing...Liz
