    Seems to me you only had two spectators to contend with and they were in your way all the way.

    I was tempted to throw pennies at them to get them to move.

    I can't see much difference between the two edits except for the eye position. The second one may be more of a glamour effect but I suspect the first one is more natural.

    Your PS8 edits are good real life action shots.

    Thanks Geoff.

    Regarding the comparative edits, Portrait Professional distorts the face if the eyes, jawline are at odd angles. You have to try and re-align the facial features. The transformation does a you say lean towards the glamour look.

    Re: As difficult as BIF Torch Singer

    f/8, 116mm, 1/800sec, ISO 1600

    Original had busy background but I liked the glow of the lamp so didn't try to blur background.

    Yes, that background looks good as it is.

    In fact it looks so natural that I would be tempted to try a closer crop and lose the speakers etc from the bottom.
