About the Image(s)

Photographed in my home studio on my new Thunder Gray background paper. Canon 5dm4, 1/100 @f/8, ISO 100, 95mm (EF 70-200 lens). Cropped to 8x10; worked in PS to smooth out blemishes and even out skin tones, enhanced eyes, added a textured overlay and changed blend mode to soft light, curves layer to darken the top of the background to match bottom. Warmed up the image.

Another great portrait!!! I like the crop you have done as it gives the image a lot more impact. You have done well with your post processing. All seems lovely and sharp and some nice catch lights in the lady's eyes. I like the background you have used. Have looked closely to see the textured overlay you have used but the soft light blend mode and blended it very well!! The slightly lighter patch of her hair on the right side I find catches my eye a little but that is really being a bit picky!!!
Well done.   Posted: 01/03/2021 10:39:03

Cheryl, a lovely shot. I really like what you did, and the only thing I can suggest is to tone down the brightness of the arms, so as not to distract from the lovely rendering of the face of your model.   Posted: 01/08/2021 20:23:46

Another great portrait, Cheryl! I like the crop, it enhances the image. I think you did a masterful job in PS! The skin tones are beautiful!   Posted: 01/10/2021 11:28:27

Technical all OK, but I believe the model could profit more when the picture is cropped to the face only - my feeling.   Posted: 01/10/2021 23:47:59
