Shooting details: Amanda was nude but covered with gauze. I had a fan blowing air up under her chin to fill the frame with her fiery red hair.

    She is beautiful, and looking for a fault, is only the hand, the skin is tired compared with the rest of the body, just soften the hand and colour, is hard but possible, still, a gorgeous portrait!

    You're right, the hand is much redder than her body skin. If I could tone it to be closer to her body that might help...thanks Roxana

    A fabulous portrait and I agree with Roxana and Vin. Two comments.....Think about doing it in black and white. It's de-saturated enough now that going farther to just b/w might look very cool. Second, if you're going to keep it in color, emphasize the "fiery red hair" more. The color is a bit muted.

    Mark, Roxana; there are a few factors that play into the color aspect of what you are seeing: one is the browser; believe it or not, your browser actually displays colors based on the color profile of the JPG differently. Chrome for example is highly saturated; Safari isn't. And then there is the color profile on the computer for the specific monitor; if they are not color calibrated you will wind up with extreme variance between what I have versus what you have. The third aspect of this is that "web color display" is also far different from print; the color depth is lower. Heck I have two monitors and each is slightly different. It is a concept I used to agonize over until I realized there is very little I could do about all these variables. Oh, and printing...well that is another nightmare I have experience with on my IPF8300. I will try to post a black/white version of this and see what you guys think...
