Nice conversion. Her left eye is really odd in the second shot.

Perhaps remove the hair from her right shoulder/chin in #1.

And she is rather lovely too !!

I like both. Your sister is very photogenic. Like to see without the shadow.

1 is over exposed but looks good if thats what u wanted, I don't like the catch light in the center of her eyes. On 2 it's hard to do but for perfection one thing you can look for is where the eye whites are, try having some white on both sides. Her right eye looks great, this may be the way her eyes are so then turn her to the other side when possible to rid of this effect. Beautiful sister, my number is…...

Haha , thank you :) We are in Lebanon, my guess is that you are in the states, if you give her your number, we'll have a problem with the phone bill ( unless you pay it ;) )

another picture below, this time in color !

In number 2, is that her hair under her left hand? The dark wisps are distracting to me.
I'd just clean those up with PP and start selling the prints.

70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

She is BEAUTIFUL!! I think the pictures a little overexposed for my taste though.

Thanks you guys for your valuable comments and critics.
I will make sure to apply them next time.
as for the overexposure, i guess i like my picture a little bit overexposed. ( or maybe my screen needs calibration).
