Very nice processing. I would remove some of the blemishes and even out the skin a little. The highlight on the nose piercing is a little distracting as well. The lighting is great and the colors complement her skin tone. Good job!

I agree. I would soften out the skin a little so it's more even and perhaps remove the white dot from her nose.

What kind of lighting did you use for this shot, if you don't mind me asking? =)

Lighting is a 600EX-RT into a SMDV Diffuser 60.

Really like the lighting and her strong, confident expression. Her right eye looks a bit darker than the left eye, especially the white of the eye. The more I study it, the more it gives a sort of unbalanced appearance. Easily corrected and nothing a "normal person" would notice. :)

Nice catch, didn't notice it myself... probably an editing error on my part.

Thanks for the feedback. I have almost no experience with portraits but have been doing some studying and reading trying to learn, so details such as facial symmetry are on my mind right now. I would have never thought about things like that in the past. In fact, I specifically came to the People forum to see what tips I could pick up. (I usually hang out on Post Processing and Printing.) I really appreciated the chance to study your work. :)
