I am on uncalibrated monitor so not sure if my CC would be legit. I agree about it being soft around her face. Did you do any smoothing on her face? The bridge of her nose looks bright.

Just chug-chug-chugging along.
The only thing I'm not a fan of is how soft it is- it's like she doesn't pop in from the bokeh- does that make sense? ..
Forgot to sharpen this one for web...so that might explain a lot of the softness...though the softness on one part of her face is due to a fix I had to do.
But if the softness is the most bothersome thing, then I suppose that's good. This was a major change at the client's request. I couldn't tell if it looked wonky because I know too well what the original looks like.
LOL! She wants both versions, but she liked her face the best in this image from all the ones I took of her that day and she needs a headshot for her website. She wanted me to take her daughter out for one version of the photo. YIKES! Had to take body and hair from another photo.

Ummm... wow! Great job taking out the daughter.
whoa! nice work, Amber! I hope you charged her enough for your hard work! you deserve it!
"Yes! I love it! Wow! You are amazing.
I would love to use it on my web site except for a couple of things..
Is there any way to fix the hair over my eye a bit, maybe by copying a piece of my eye from another shot and putting it over the hair? Also,can we edit in a neater version of my hair on the bottom, so it is less frizzy, more professional looking? I know it was a little neater in some of the earlier shots we took."
I want to shoot myself in the eye! I asked her to look through the images and find one where the hair is the way she would like it and told her I couldn't promise that I could fix it. What I wanted to say was "go fly a kite! I've already put several hours into this photo for no extra charge. As for the hair over the eye!!!! She has NO idea how hard eye and hair fixes can be. If I really thought I could have fixed it well, I would have done it in the original image.
Wow! Great job I would never have guessed it included her daughter!
Umm...if it's so easy to do why did she hire a professional!?!? Some people eh! Good luck, when you've got it done I'd love to see the finished product!
