All down to the purpose of the shot and personal taste. I like this one.

Hey now... I'm just proud of her. :-)

Wow, I didn't realize adding all the photos that I've posted over the years to my gallery would generate so much attention. This was picked to be in the "best of"! Thanks to everyone for the views and comments!

I like it. I think we should take more "natural" shots from time to time...too much perceived perfection is taking the spice out of photography. Leave it be...:)


I agree. Everyone try too hard to make things perfect, when sometimes, actually many times, we should just go with the way it is and keep it natural. I like it the way it is, but she has the final say.

Not a distraction . Hair go well with the mood of the image.

I think women prefer not to have hair in their faces. I think guys are looking at other parts of the photo than the hair, hence why they don't mind it when it gets in front of the face. :)

i LOVE hair in the face! Always seems like it's the model who doesn't like it though.

did this in 2 minutes in PS
- you can spend 15 and make it a lot cleaner
- i just used a similar background cut her out and pasted her on

i like the messy hair, but:
- i would remove the excessive flying hairs camera left against the BG
- and a few that are close to her nose and mouth

- it is a great picture and I think worth the time of polishing it
- the original picture also has some blotchy skin colors around her lower left cheek which I would clean up
- if you aren't familiar with a PS technique called Frequency Separation, I would use that to better blend the colors in that area

Youtube video on that technique

For the life of me I just can't seem to tell the difference between your edits and the original.

The stray hairs are gone...fairly easy in PS (depending on the background) this background is perfect for it (could do it with the original background too)! Nice job!

Personal opinion: either no hair in the face, or quite a bit more (coming from the same side) would both be better. In this shot, as far as the strays, I like it better than the cleaned up version.

Thanks. Yes, I know how to remove hair in Photoshop, but I didn't want it removed, just opinions from other photographers.

Edit: Sorry for being short. It's been a long day. Also, I don't know where to set "Image editing okay" to off in the AMASS system. I always get irked whenever someone edits my photos these days. For what it's worth, the cleaned up version looks pretty good.

I don't mind the hair across her face, but I might try and clean up the hair around the back of her head that is haloing out a bit. I think less "perfect" hair can bring a photo to a more natural candid area, which it sounds like you like as well!
