Probably sick of seeing my girl (CC please)

I don't have the info right now, for some reason it wasn't uploaded to flickr? Weird. I'll post it when I get home. This was done with my new lens the Nikon 85mm f/1.8 (amazing!). So I'm sure the f-stop was 1.8, shutter speed was probably 160 or more and I think ISO was between 100 and 400. I'll confirm when I get home though.

Does her skin look a bit blue?

Settings
Alright, so I was shooting
f/1.8
SS 1600
and ISO 400

Second Edit - Warmed it up, toned down the whites of her eyes and did a bit more colour pop. What do you think? Does it look better?

I can't comment too much on color b/c I'm uncalibrated here at work, but everything else looks AWESOME! Focus, composition, exposure ... GREAT!

LOVE the colors in her sweater!

TFS (I never get tired of her pics)!

Best,
GiGi

NEVER! She's gorgeous! I love the colors, and I don't know about the blue. She looks fine to me!

I love this sweater! The focus looks good, and her skin looks okay to me too. Her eyes look a bit over done in the whites tho. I never get tired of seeing her pic either!

Nice! I love it. Her skin does look a bit gray like when you slide the recovery slider over in ACR. Did you do this? If so I would go back and pull the exposure back down and then bring her skin up in levels in ps. If not then I would say it is a hair cool and slightly underexposed. Warming it up a bit and adding a screen layer on very low opacity would make it look more lively.

I agree with this and also that the whites of her eyes look artificially bright. but what a great shot!! I love the colors and that gorgeous bokeh.. and the eye contact is perfect!

You've gotten great CCs already. Your little one is a cutie pie. I would also boost or pop the color overall.

I don't have ACR so I didn't do any recovery adjustments. I believe the only editing I did on this picture was I ran the Color Pop2 action from CoffeeShop actions. I didn't really notice the grey/blue until I was at work on my laptop and it seemed very cool.

I agree about the eyes, I didn't realize they were so white, I'll have to check that out
