    A very nice image Victor. I like the crop. A couple of niggly little points you might want to consider - you are using a small flash, so you can see some of the artifacts from that. I might go in and enlarge the catchlights in your model's eyes a bit, they are quite small and would be more effective if you made them larger. Use a nice soft brush and low opacity to build them up a bit.

    The other issue with the flash are a few strange looking shadows. I would be tempted to soften the impact under the model's lip and on her collar a bit. There are a few spots on and just below her nose I would soften as well.

    Very nice image. She looks doll-like... I am wondering if there are not some artifacts where her left nostril (image right) meets her cheek.. Although it may just be her make-up...

    Yes, indeed. Very nice!

    I agree with Richard that she does look a little doll-like, even though she is a doll, ie very pretty.

    Hi Manfred,John, Dave, Richard and Christina,

    I will take note of your valuable critique/advice: such as enlarging the catch light, cloning out artifacts, "strange looking shadows", some spots to soften, toning down her "doll-like" skin, and others for the next similar images.

    Thanks for your CiC, really appreciate it.
    And to all who viewed Michiko.

    Have a nice day,

    Victor
