I'm not even certain that it's the same woman.

I believe it is. If you compare details like the direction of hair growth and waves at her hairline, tonal shading in irises, shape of nose, shape of chin, they all match up. He did a marvelous job of showing how the shooting angle and technique can change a subject's appearance. The glasses and facial expression contribute, too. And all this seems to have been done without makeup.

Agree about the nose, but disagree about hairline and irises. More of a widow's peak on top photo and irises of the subjects right eye are clearly different. Nose could have been PSed in.

I don't see any of those differences. Hairline looks the same to me. Lighting could affect shading in irises. In addition, this is the wife thread, and we can reasonably assume that the photographer has just one.

Hmm, maybe you are right. Anyway she's a pretty lady and I hope that the poster will return and give us the low down on these fascinating photos.

Going for a cinematic look in the first one and a noir look in the second. What do you think? Was I successful?

On both images her face is overprocessed. There are ways to do that without making it blunt about it. In my opinion, subtle is much more desirable in photography.

This is in fact one woman; my wife. The idea was to see how much of an age gap could make semi-realistic. I realize that there is the issue of over processing to some degree but my wife made an interesting point once I presented the images to her. She hated the Black n White one but loved the color one. She said it made her feel young again. The image looked like she did when she was in her mid 20s. I guess the point was that even though we see it as 'over processed' she saw it as a look back into time and absolutely loved the color image. She has ordered a 8x10 print of it.

So the question is; even if we think something is over processed but the client loves it and doesn't really like a more correctly processed version, then the client is right in terms of a deliverable?

In terms of which one I like? I like the Noir style portrait better. That is who I see everyday. But if you tell her that I will deny it! :-)

Very cool, thanks for the explanation. Give her what she wants, I say.:-)

I thought some of the comments were a bit out of line, so congratulations on a graceful response and for getting shots that you and your wife wanted.

I second that.... If the customer is happy, then your work was a success!

I didn't take offense. I knew going in that the over process comments would come. It really is a matter of personal taste. While most of my work does involve 'some' skin smoothing most are done just enough to make the people look a bit more glamorous. Most of my customers cannot afford the extra cost of a MUA so I tell them if they think they need it, just use a foundation minimally. Most everything can be fixed post production. Yeah, it's a bit more work but they usually get a few less shots to choose from than someone that has close to perfect complexion.

Thank you all for the comments. I look forward to learn from you all and trying new things!

A nice softness in this image. I don't usually like this much softness but I think it works here! Nice!
