    Kelly - Not sure what I'm meant to be seeing here. I am seeing a block box with a road/highway 'No entry/Route blocked' type sign.

    Looks like some parts of the world (Europe?) are putting a block on this and other images posted by Kelly. I think members in the US are seeing them.

    I've let Sean (McQ) know about this.

    I'm across the pond in the states Donald and I am also seeing the same traffic type sign.

    I saw the image when it was first posted but not now.

    I edited my original post to link it to a Cambridgeincolor album instead of my picasaweb album. Hopefully all can see it now!

    Yep. And it was worth waiting for. What an expression!

    This is a very nice picture of a very nice girl.
    My only concern is the eyes...I find the white a bit too bright, like model's eyes on magazines.

    Yep - something weird going on with the eyes there. I'd probably try and clone out the circle in the background if it's not too difficult. Nice pose otherwise.

    Re: Tons of personality

    I didn't do much to her eyes before, but just to make sure, I started over with a completely clean original image SOOC and the only thing I did to her eyes on this one was some sharpening. They don't look that much different than the other edit...maybe that pic just was weird on her eyes to begin with!

    And I tried to clone out the paint on the wall as mentioned.

    I think this version is a big improvement - great job on cloning out the orange circle and getting rid of the square in the top right. The focus is squarely on your subject now without any distracting elements.

    Not sure what happened with the eyes in the first one but the second one looks better on this front as well I think. To me it looks like her irises have been brightened a bit too much in the first shot but they look much more natural in your redo. However if you didn't really touch them at all, I'm not sure why they look different now.

    Re: Tons of personality

    I was doing some reading last night on an unrelated subject and apparently one of the things that can happen in portrait photography is that when your model looks to far in one direction such that the irises are in the corners of the eye, then too much white appears to show in the eye which can look slightly unnatural. Perhaps this is what has happened here.

    Re: Tons of personality

    I guess that the colour of the background wall being darkish made me think the whole room would be a similar colour... Perhaps you have got a rather large white wall or reflector on the side of the room behind the camera? ...
    That could also add extra brightness to the whites...

    Re: Tons of personality

    I think it may be a combination of things...I think her looking to the extreme side like that contributed...and yes, now that I think about it (it wasn't at my house so I had to remember)...there was a window directly across from her (but above her).
