The Advantage of Digital Images,
Post production is a lot easier, These photos were taken during one session. But using software, the output photo can be so different even this beginner can manage them. If in the old days of film, afraid will be hours and hours of work.
I realize the lighting of these were just plain Vanilla setups compare to you guys, any other hints that may help to improve them ?? which skin tone you think is better ??
All comments and suggestions welcome.

Nice work, KC. Very.

I love the last one - her contact with the viewer is impossible to ignore. However, you might want to remove the two freckles on her nose - for some reason, they catch my eye. I'm not sure how I feel about the pink/red tone - it's a bit strong, but it gives the image a "heat" that I think it'd lack otherwise.

I like the first two as well, but the orientation somehow causes less intimacy, IMO. Maybe just me, maybe a psychological factor. Even the second, with it's awesomely warm coloring and close-up contact, doesn't, IMO, have the "grab" of the last.

But that's just my opinion - worth less than it's costing you.

Again - nice work. Thanks for sharing.

Good work - just that No 2: The eyes is a problem IMO. I think they can be half closed, just they are not aligned?? Chuck the 2c if you want to - I will understand

Thanks again for your comments, Professor..
You are too kind. Your opinion is worth a lot more than what you claimed, it is at least another $0.25 into my pocket .
I too agree with you that eye contact is one of the more important part of a good portrait/glamour photo. As you can see, Once a while, I am able to get some parts done right part of the time, it is putting it all together into a single image that is eluding me so far. I guess there is the Master Photographers like those in this board , and then there is me, another GWC.

Hope some workshops with Rg will help to improve on that, heading to Atlanta in October for my first one.

good observation, it is my fault failing to notice such major flaw. Guess if there is any intended use for this photo will need some work by an PS expert.

Thanks for comment...

Sorry to report that post-processing of these images were done with a software only in the Chinese Language. With this software ( nEOiMAGING http://www.neoimaging.com.tw/index1.htm ), very similiar to some of other 3rd party photo enhancing software. Putting in in general terms, What I did was to Change WB to a very WARM tone, then using COLOR RGB adjustment and Saturation adjustment slider to get the skin tone that I like, in this case about (R=255,G=150,B=75, Saturation=95%, Hue=35', Brightness=60%). Then later adding skin smoothing and Softlight filters to image.
In other words , just trial and Error... :-p
Being such a novice in PS, I am pretty sure there are many experts here who can give much better instructions on how to get such results from PhotoShop or any plug-ins suitable for such task.Please feel free to correct me and looking forward for some learning opportunity.
Thanks in Advance.
KC
