So...been doing this for a while, but I've never requested CC via any forum. But, I'm feeling proud and, finally, capable. So, I am looking for feedback to see if and/or how far off-base I might be! ;)

TIA for your feedback. let'er rip!

Oh and this was for a corporate head-shot. But, she specifically, didn't want the "look" to be typical of such. So, in case you're wondering about the location backdrop.

Thanks! Do you think it looks too "cold" or too "warm"?

I'm also never entirely too sure about how much tilt. Is there a "rule" to consider? I usually have them try several different tilts until I see one that doesn't make them look "weird" in that their face appears too wide or too narrow or whatever.

That's a very pleasing portrait and any tilt is balanced out by your logo.

A bit hard to tell, but it may be a tad too cool.

I like the edit better. After comparing the tilts, the edits looks more natural. I'm not 100% convinced the image is cool, more so, the image is dominated by flat, neutral colors. After looking at the picture for a while, the only fault I could find was the buried pinky finger.

I think the image itself is a casual, well composed, clean image. Kind of reminds me of an editorial profile that should have a short write up next to it. Good one!

THAT is seriously impressive! I SO do not know Photoshop. So, that's cool and I do like your edit better.

Thanks!

It's funny you should say that it has an "editorial" look...I am currently in school studying photojournalism etc. So, I guess my professors would be happy with that too! hahahaha

Thank ya kindly!

Oh and I will definitely work to be more conscientious of buried digits and such.
