    I think they're great No 2 made me laugh. I really like the lighting in number 2, number one is slightly dark on the face though.

    Thanks Nicola, Kerry.

    Both are natural light through the blinds. In 2 it hit her in the right spot, in 1 it was backlights. Decided to leave 1 as is, could have brightened up a bit of the face but did not want to destroy the other lighting.

    Softness in pic was a bit deliberate. Made the top of head slightly softer to lead to the area around the eye area. She may have moved just a fraction too.

    Hope I am doing it right? Plenty of leeway in the pics for other work if needed.

    Anyway went ahead and lightened up the face in #1.

    Thanks Dave, Kerry, John - glad for the feedback and the improvement that made to the pic(s). The more I look at the #1 redo the more engaging it looks.
