A recent shoot with sisters Shauna & Keira in the studio while on a one-on-one tutorial session. This image stood out for me from the shoot. C&C most welcome.

That was what I first noticed too. mouth on the left seems over sharpened too and theres the odd lines around edges of skin in some places - either over sharpened or could just be from the resize for web.

couple of other things; i'd clone out the contact lens edge lines of the girl on the left

and theres something a bit odd looking about the DoF, but I'm not sure quite what it is though.... did you selectively blur parts? seems like it drops off too quickly given the depth needed to get all 4 eyes in focus

those comments aside, I think its a really strong image and I like it, but the post isn't quite up to your normal high standards

Skin is way too softened for my taste. Lighting is good, though.

Way too much skin smoothing and eyes are oversharpened in comparison IMO. Could otherwise be a good picture if you just reprocessed.

Thanks, your spot on. I'll admit this image was my first stab at playing with Portrait Professional version 12 (And I got a little carried away!) This was shot at f2.2 so all the DOF is as shot. I'll re-process this image again.

I was wondering about that. have a look at tour original and see if she has them or not. I've seen portrait professional add them. I forget which slider it is. it might be just the skin overbluring and eye oversharpening that makes the dot look odd

you can get some great results with portrait pro, but its easy to over do it

nice pose and composition. I personally suggest taking down much of that blur effect.

Thanks, this was shot at f2.2 in a continuous lighting set up using the modelling lamps of the stobes only (ie no flash) so no blur has been applied to the shot. (just natural and intentional narrow depth of field which I love the look of). Its a high risk strategy particularly with two models as getting both sets of eyes in focus is difficult (and in this shot I failed!) I freely admin that I've gone too far with post processing with portrait professional as mentioned above.

nice idea, nice lighting, but as other have said, just a bit too processed (eyes and skin) for me.
