A MASTERPIECE !
the cut, the way to use (or not) smooth with photoshop, the marvelous color-handling in postprocessing and the reflexions (as shot) in their eyes!
Thanks. She's a pretty gal.

The only thing that bothers me is the slightly visible contact lens. Not a huge deal for most people but that always distracts me.
I'm not sure she has contact lenses?
100% crop of her left eye (camera right).

EDIT* I just talked to her and she does wear contacts. Good eye, but I still don't see where her contacts are? hrrmm.

Way cool! How close did you have the DO, also, what diffuser set up?
Just one diffuser. I have never actually used the DO with both diffusers, even back in Indiana when I shot with Pham's I believe we still used just one. The way I see it is that the DO is perfect with one because the it will diffuse it like a softbox, but still keeps a little contrasted punch to the image.
We took roughly 45 head shots in probably 2 hours and the first half of the images I'd say the DO was about 4-5 feet in front of her and slightly to the left. The last half I adjusted it to be on camera axis, and probably closer to 4 feet from her. The power was pretty high since I was using f/6.3 and combined with the night sky. So i was shooting most of them with 4.2-4.4 on the ELI power scale.
