Hi, I like the way this turned out. Anyone else like the effect/processing? like to hear your thoughts on it either way, thanks!

Not to bad, but there seems to be a blue layer over the image which makes it a little bit dull.

This is what I did, I just played around with the levels in photoshop.

There does seem to be a haze but then again that may be how you intended it. The eyes, lips and nose are still nicely in focus while the rest of the images conveys softness.

I like it. Not how I would have worked it but if you and her are happy with it them I say good job!

Thanks so much everyone!! Yes, I did mean to put the layer over the pic (fog filter) I thought it looked good but now comparing it to the one without, it really looks better that way (thanks for the edit!). LOL jaundice look...that's all I see when I look at the original now ;) I would love to see your version of B&W if you have time, I do think it would be nice that way. I'm not super confident in my b&w conversions though. How do you all think the lighting worked out? I used a 580 ex with a beauty dish (DIY) and a Yongnuo flash. thanks again :)

I'm not a fan of the original processing but I do like this processing.

Unfortunately you inserted a huge hot spot on her forehead.

Thank you for that, I only really noticed it when you said it, I salvaged it a little bit.

Cheers :)
