One for CC please...JMK

I have been working on my workflow in Photoshop...Please CC anything/everything.

Here is the SOOC:

ISO: 560
Exposure: 1/30 sec
Aperture: 2.8 Focal Length: 50mm
Flash Used: No

Here is the after: I didnt really do to much touch up...I just defined the eyes a little. the rest is all playing with levels.

LOL her expression is really cute. Smile

I don't think your ap is too open, though it does take practice to get an image tack sharp at that aperture. I think you did a really nice job, especially with a SS of 1/30! Nice catchlights too!

The SOOC is pretty underexposed and the white balance is a bit too cool--you can still see this in her eyes in the edit, the whites are a touch blueish. The edit also a touch too much contrast for my taste.

I'm not one for eye-popping--the best way to get the eyes to sparkle is to get them into the right lighting, and get a good exposure.
