Tina, my bosses' ex who came to join us for a drink one night & he asked me to take a pic of her (I nearly always have my camera) & so I did. She's quite glamorous, so I spent a little longer than normal in post-processing, but I think I've made it a little too soft, not sure.

She is beautiful. I like your pp alot! :). But not so sure about that orange halo around her hair and I reckon the skin could do with a little more hue perhaps? I'ts a tad 'orange'. Great shot, though. :)

The glow is a bit strong, the teeth look un-natural and the eyes are lost in shadow or with the PP work. Finally remove the white spot on the background as that's a distraction.

Tidy those areas up and you will have a great image, and tone down the orange ;)

She is beautiful, and it is way too soft IMHO... to much glow as well. Great light and great caught moment. But the whole photo has a hazy feel to it, which is okay, just not my bag.

Excellent shot, maybe a soft sharpen would be in order

g'day Brad, lovely lady....I think it is a bit too much PP in terms of glow and the pose emphasises her nose a bit much. A slight turn to her left would have been more flattering. Was it a caught moment or pose?

It was a definite "of the moment" shot with a

"get your camera out Brad & take a photo",

"eh?? But I've just had 4 beers...."

Thanks for your comments everyone, I will have a play with the original & see what I can come up with.
