I took this of my neighbor last night at the elementary school. The light was just good, and she looked so pretty standing there. She loved the photo when I showed it to her in camera, and then said that she actually needs a photo of herself for something. Anyhow, when I was editing it, I kept seeing green in her hair highlights. I didn't go back to ACR, just did a color balance to pull some green out and then I added a tiny bit of yellow. How does she look, in terms of color?
Exposure 0.005 sec (1/200)

Looks good to me. That's nice of you to help her out!

I think you did well on her hair. It looks a little underexposed to me and at first I thought it was SOOC I think you could play it a little more and really make it fun.

Ditto what Beth said! Great pic to play with!

I'm not seeing green, but it does seem a tad under exposed and lacking a bit of your usual pop. Maybe a soft light later (at really low opacity) would bring it out.

really? I'm playing with it yet again, I just don't know why I'm not loving it brighter. but I'll redo my edits on a new version (as I did some skin smoothing at her request ) and will post it later. gotta get the kids to bed first. I am in consignment sale prep mode, so I'm behind on my family edits. gotta get my clothes all tagged so have been spending less time on the computer. fingers crossed that I'm done by Wednesday!
