    Works for me. There's a lovely clarity in the image.

    What is it that you're doing that's new?

    Thanks Donald,

    Basically it's a technique that varies the softening depending on the tone, but with "manual over-ride" for areas that need to be sharp (like eyes etc).

    I think it looks very good colin. The skin looks soft yet plenty of detail. The lighting is excellent as well. Care to explain the technique in a little more detail ?

    Thanks Steve,

    The "crux" of it is ...

    - Select entire image

    - Copy to clipboard

    - Duplicate the layer

    - Add mask to top layer

    - Paste image into mask

    - Load mask as selection

    - Apply gaussean blur

    - Reduce Opacity of blurred layer

    - Deselect

    - Erase portions of image that should be sharp (eyes, brows, lips etc)
