She is very beautiful, but the shot needs some more "punch," perhaps more contrast, light in the eyes, etc.

Love looking her though.

Thanks, I didn't give too much contrast because I wanted a softer look, as for the light in the eyes, there is some in the original image (flash helping) but here the eyes are too small so that one can notice.

Thanks for the constructive critics, very much appreciated

Hanna is natrually beautiful huh. I like what you've done. It could perhaps do with a little levels adjustment to bring through the contrast a bit more, and maybe a little saturation?

The picture is under exposed. Notice the bright background and the dark subject. It looks at least 1 stop under exposed.

@ hwhite, KenTT : Thanks

@ NZFritz : I wanted to give the picture a softer, peaceful look, that's why the only minimal adjustments

@ Hellashot : agreed, but not a stop, the background had unfortunately this light patch

@ Rhinotherunt : Which tint do you think is dominant? On my screen (calibrated) it seems well

Hanna is a very beautiful model and you captured her beauty very well. Some of the pictures (this one (external link) for example) are too pale for my taste, they lack that punch that some of the repliers were talking about. I know that you wanted to give the pictures softer look, but in these particular pictures this just doesn't work, at least for me. It's not just low contrast but also the colors which are very dull, you may want to try to convert these pictures to B&W and see how they turn out.


Best wishes,
Oleg.

You're right, that serveral are a bit pale
When working on them in PS, they were ok, then I used an action to resize them to 400x600 which also removes the color profile and some other things such as sharpening and from that point on, I had the impression that some color had disappeared.
I'll have to check that again

thanks

It is too cool, and I have checked on calibrated monitors. Sample the white shirt to help straiten the WB.
