I was just messing around at the salon and managed to snap this picture. I love the expression!

Thoughts?

Nice shot. Skin texture looks off though, seems a bad rubbery

Beautiful eyes and lovely smile.
I agree with the other ones the skin is overdone.

It looks like a nice shot sans skin softening but I wouldn't call this a candid. Generally candids don't involve people looking and smiling at the camera. I'd call it an informal portrait. Pretty shot but not really candid. :)


I am super cool n' stuff.

I agree with the other comments, beautiful model with gorgeous eyes, but skin overdone.

The skin is overly done, but take heart in the fact that 1) you're at least pretty good at doing skin retouching (and just need to back it off a bit) and 2) other than that the photo is great.

Skin is a bit overdone as everybody has already said...it shows further on the hair...as it also got soft. Eyes are a bit too sharp...maybe because of the skin being so soft. Otherwise, goodlooking bridesmaid :)

It is such a great capture that it is worth a full hour of very careful retouching.
