Appreciating some of the comments offered on my first shot, I picked a second shot attempting to answer some of the criticisms about composition and lighting, albeit without tears. This takes the model to a new mood level showing her range of emotions. Note, again, that lighting was candle only, the reflection of which can be seen in the wine glass. I have always been basically a landscape photographer now trying something new and finding that it is entirely a new ballgame where many of the rules don't seem to apply.....or do they? Again, comments and criticisms welcomed.

Very well done. The light is great and she is quite attractive. The only thing I would do is lighten the dark line under her right eye. For some reason that's where my eye goes.

So what about this "quick fix" with the eye, Titus? Your further comments or anyone else's appreciated. Understand that this is not a studio setting but rather making the most of a "real" setting.

I thought you made the most of what you had just fine. It's a great shot.

I love it....It has a very "warm, intimate" feel. :)

It's a lovely shot.. I love the warm glow of the candlelight on her face.
I think you can make it pop a bit more if you do just one thing, because I personally don't see that it needs much else.

Try duplicating the original layer and adding USM at about 15-30-0 and see what that does.. I have a feeling it will add a little contrast and just firm it up a bit. ;)
