Any suggestions, or comments, would be appreciated. The original is not quite as fuzzy. Thanks.

Is this a watercolored edit? I like it, looks very storybook to me..

Thank you. Yes, it has had quite a bit of post processing done. My goal was to make it look like a painting.

There seems to be a loss of detail in the overexposed highlights. What do you think?
It is also a very compelling image!
Nice!

Very nice, indeed. The movement action in her hair in front, in back, and of the book adds much to the softness and surreal effects of the image. If it were crystal sharp, it would not have worked as good as this. Because of the pseudo-abstractness of the image, I believe the highlighted forehead adds to the effect and feel. Good job!

I like the idea, the picture and the PP. I do not like her knee showing though it draws my eye away from the book.

Nice shot! Just wondering, but is this basically just smudging of the image? Or is there something else to it?

Thanks!

Thanks to all. The post processing was done by mostly using the smudge tool, along with some other embellishments (burn, dodge, etc.).

If burn / dodge were used to darken / lighten, instead consider using the 50% opaque gray layer technique. It is said to work better and is less destructive for the image. And like an adjustment layer, if you don't like the results you can simply delete the layer and start again.

Actually the burn/dodge technique was used primarily on the detailed areas such as the eyelashes and hair. But I may use your suggestion, to experiment a bit more. Thanks.
