    Female Portrait V

    This photo was one of the first portraits I took when I started in digital photography.
    This photo was actually a married couple; however after the man died I cropped him out of the photo.
    This pic was shot with fill flash with a Lumi-Quest diffuser. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to clone the reflections off the frames of the eyeglasses. I have PS; however I could not locate a tool that would eliminate the reflections.
    Aperture - f9.0
    Shutter - 1/60
    ISO - 200
    Focal length - 38mm
    C&C most welcomed. Bruce

    Why did you crop him out, do you plan to use the image somewhere that the widow might see it?

    John, after the man died, I studied the photo, and liked the photo of her individually. I did not publish the individual photo; however she has seen the photo with just her in it.

    I'm not loving what you did with her skin; it looks rather plastic.

    With respect to the glasses, I haven't done a brilliant job, but rather than cloning, another way to approach the reflection issue is to flip the image horizontally and rotate it so that the glasses from the other side lie over the original image. Add a layer mask and paint the part of the frame where there is no reflection in to mask the high glare part.

    Manfred, thanks for commenting. I do not recall doing anything to this photo other than some sharpening, and checking for proper white balance,

    BTW: I checked the original photo on an external hard drive- the skin looks the same.
