It could use a little processing. First off, not sure if this a wife, girlfriend, friend, or just a random model so take these comments strictly from a technical standpoint. Some smoothing would get rid of the frown lines above the model's right eye and the wrinkles around the same eye. I'd also 'fix' the model's left front tooth which seems to protrude. The skin tone seems a bit reddish. But the editing depends on what you're trying to accomplish...some prefer a natural look with minimal processing to reflect reality, others like to see an 'improved' version.

Her face seems a bit bright on my monitor.

Exactly.



If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

Gosh, the pupils seem large for the conditions.

Agree with the redness ... even the part in the hair shows very red skin.
And the blown highlights around her left eye don't match the matte of the rest of her skin.

Thanks for the replies
It was a shot of my wife apart from the eyes I was trying for a shot straight of the camera.
Skin colour is off in this but I wanted to see if the potrait was good.
i am a newbie and trying to get a 3 dimensional image.

The shiny spot under her eye and on the ridge of the nose really bugs me. Was it direct flash ?

As has already been mentioned, there are quite a few flash hot spots a definite red face and chest and what looks like oversharpening. As it is, the photograph is the wrong side of honest

As you know, when you shoot an image, you are taking something that has 3 dimensions (height, width and depth) and are reducing it to 2 dimensions, height and width like a piece of photo paper or a computer image. You can't get a 3 dimensional image unless you understand light and how to use light and shadow and depth of field to achieve that third dimension. That third dimension is DEPTH and it is naturally missing on a piece of photo paper or on a computer monitor. You must trick the viewer's eye into seeing that third dimension, that depth, which isn't really there. In this photo, there is no depth. Everything is flat because you used light that is straight on and it killed any hope of dimensionality that could be created. If you can master light, you can get the 3 dimensional quality that you are seeking in your images.

Thanks for the replies.
Flash was diffused but not much.
Main was at model 10-11 o'clock. fill through brollie was at model right at 2.30ish.
What would people do to get the depth with light. I may shoot the main with brollie?
Have been reading and still trying to get there, seems a lot of my photos get OOF. I do try to use the DOF chart but have limited space.
