Love those.
I would've deleted that thinking they are all blown out. Thank you for showing me that with the right technique you can create awesome looking high key/semi blown out shots. :)

Did some minor dodging/burning to try and bring out more definition around the jawline, and processed a portrait in B&W which I haven't done much of before.

C&C please. Always trying to get better:

I like the shot CJ. A couple of things I notice with B/W it really brings out any sort of flaw. Not that there is anything wrong with the picture, but I would clean up the right cheek (image left) as there is a vertical line running up and left on her cheek. Also on her right forehead, there is some sort of blemish just inside her hair line. The skin looks good overall. Not too cooked or smoothed at all.
I just find the B/W really just accentuates the imperfections and I have to go over my shots with a lot more care after a conversion.
Lovely model by the way. She should be very happy with the work you did for her.

Thanks for the comments. As for the line going down, it is a small scar of hers and she asked me to keep it in as she is using it for headshots/applications for some acting gigs.

I didn't notice the blemish on her forehead, however, which I will have to give another look.
