I like this a lot, but I think you can make the eyes pop a little more.

Great job here. yes make the eyes pop a bit more and soften the skin under her eyes and maybe work the skin a bit as looks a bit over sharpened to me.

Very nicely done. I too would soften her skin just slightly and brighten her eyes also very slightly. Keep most of the texture in her skin; just soften it a little bit.

The suggestions people are giving you might indeed make this a little better, but I admit to liking it as is... Think you've done a good job.

This is a very nice portrait just as it is. I think too much processing spoils a good picture.


5D,20D, some lenses and stuff
