I have nothing constructive to add that others haven't already suggested. Very nice shots though and you're subject is absolutely lovely.

These photos are very striking - beautiful eyes with the almost black and while look punctuated by color.

Thanks guys. Skin smoothing really was minimal. I use a very light hand. She had porcelain skin to begin with and the light bouncing from the snow almost mimics clamshell lighting.

Why add any smoothing at all if her skin was already near flawless? Now I realized that you are a working professional and the following is not meant to belittle your talent in any way (which is present in abundance!), but check out some fashion magazines next time you are in a grocery store or wherever. You'll notice that the skin of the models always has at least a little bit of texture. In my personal opinion, I believe that skin smoothing should only be used in the most dire situations. Skin attributes to someone's overall character in so many ways.

Thanks Jt and todd.

Jack, I did just enough retouching to smooth out any edges made from healing blemishes and other tidbits.

Ah, understood. Makes sense. Your model is beautiful and you did a perfect job with the flawless skin technique. I did not notice your amount of experience when I posted what I did so please disregard what was said. What I posted was sort of a "be careful in the future" sort of thing that was directed toward a person with much less experience than you. However, I see now that you know what you are doing more-so than your average Joe Shmoe.

Hiya there! I love these so much! The contrast is great and I love that your subject pops out of the background so nicely! I think that's what was lacking for me in Sara's that you posted after this. This is kind of a comment on 2 of your posts haha.. but you get the point.

Just beautiful!

These are wonderful shots, Tiffany. Really great work.

The only thing that jumps out at me is the WB (skintones) seems a bit different on 2 and 4. (especially 4) You may of meant to do this. And, honestly; it doesn't hurt them as stand alone shots at all. Just thought it was worth mentioning.

Again, great work. Very inspiring.

Yeah, I'm kind of regretting posting Sara's. Apparently they don't speak to anyone and brand me as a sucktographer.

some really nice stuff again but I too feel the smoothing is a bit much and the last one if shown in the same series as the top one seem a bit on the green side.

These are really nice. Something about the color in #2 and #4 seems a bit off to me, but #1 and #3 are definitely on point. Great work!
