Looks great Peter. The eyes and hair have that oversharpened artifact look. I don't know how you're images are hosted but I just discovered that Flickr was ruining my images because of the way they downsize.

Are you experiencing anything like that? If not then to my eye it appears to be slightly too crisp. :cool:

I kinda see that, too. Right on the edge of being too crisp, for me. Can't be 100% sure, though.

My only suggestion would be to dial back the PP on her breasts. Something about it almost looks like she's got a painting of breasts under her jacket.
I'm having similar issues lately with dialing in the surface blur to an acceptable level. Amazing how much time one can spend on it. :lol:

yeah I did read about Flickr and sharpening. I've never really noticed b/c I like sharp pics. I'm just happy it's not like Facebook which really degrades IQ often.

Peter this shot is excellent, I love your crop/composition, I don't think to many photogs would have looked at this shot like this, and I love that about it, beautiful!
