    Hi Nicole

    It's a shame your eyes are slightly out of focus

    Hi Bryn,

    Nicole is lovely, but the on camera (I assume) flash doesn't 'model' her features too well, but that's unfair, this was likely a grab shot while your where out (together?) somewhere.

    I see from the EXIF, it has already been through PSE 9 and Portrait Professional, although I believe the shot could be further improved by experienced PP (no offence intended), the areas I'd adjust (but don't have the skills myself to demonstrate) are;
    IMO a slightly too bright forehead
    toning down the shirt colour/brightness and sharpness (that button really attracts attention)
    cloning out a couple of irregularities on the rim of her hair against background
    selective sharpening

    That said, it certainly isn't bad now, and I hope Nicole likes it enough for you to get her in front of your camera again, she is fortunate to have very nice facial features.

    Hope that helps, Dave

    PS I added the EXIF data above as this always helps us give informed advice instead of guessing

    Hi Bryn,

    you have captured a very nice picture here, well done.
    I do agree with some of the points already made, but I think you can made some adjustment in PP to overcome these if you wish. This is how I would have processed it in PP if mine, just to give you my view on things. I will of course remove it from this thread, if I have overstepped the mark.

    I look forward to more of your work.
    Kind regards.

    Nicole

    The PP on the second shot is overdone I think.
    I would stick to the original, take the light of the forehead and sharpen the eyes a little.
