those are great, mike. she's SoooOOOOooo ez on the eyes! and, yeah, the contrast levels look good.

here's one of the first things i often do to an image, i.e., after cropping and resizing.

1. hold down ctl-alt-spacebar and hold down the left-click on the mouse and pull oute a rectangle that mostly just includes the eyes so that portion of the image is blown up quite large.

2. get the levels tool up and grab the black eyedropper and find the blackest part of the pupils and click. this is a pretty good way to set your black level. make sure its the blackest part. it'll be just a small area of the pupils.

3. use the mid-tone slider and adjust to taste and also the same with the white level slider.

after that, i often use the curves tool to fine adjust. remember that the mid-tone slider will effect color values moreso than the black or white so keep an eye on that as well.

Thanks for the tips. I'll try that. What do you think about the color, saturation, exposure? Are they on track as well?

I'm digging the saturation. These images pop more than the usual. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Good looking set of images. Pretty model. Color and saturation all look good too. She has that "let's seduce the photographer" thing going on.

We were actually going for, "I really want the viewer of this image to think I want to go to bed with him/her." But I'll take your comment as a compliment.

color and sat are a taste thing. me, maybe i'd saturate just a tiny bit more, maybe not. and maybe i'd make them a tiny bit warmer, i dunno. they look pretty damn good, mike. exposure looks good to me. nice work, dude.

Yes it was meant as a compliment, whether she is seducing the viewer or the photographer. Both ideas work here I think.
