Heavy handed use of the blur tool

Head eye alignment seems strange looks as if she has a defective (lazy) eye.

Too much of a birds eye perspective I would have been at leat eye level with the subject. too much white space (backspace) above subject


Take this for what is worth ( about .001 cents) just my own personal option

A bit of separation from the background would have been nice, but overall I like the concept.

I like the concept a lot. But, her face seems to be over PS'ed. Maybe that is the effect you wanted.

I am not sure what Net Map was refering to. To me, it looks like I am at eye level with her. Like you were on the floor with her. Also, I think the photo is cropped well. I think the Rule of Thirds is met. The skin tone goes well with the wood on the guitar. Your photo gives me ideas.

Here is one I took that some said they wanted to see more separation...

Nice concept but the photoshop is horrid. Way over the top. She doesn't even look human.

I'll comment on the comments.

Heavy handed use of the blur tool -- I agree, it's overdone. Some people are into that "plastic doll skin" look (I'm not one of them), but if you're going for that look blurring is not the best way to go because as this image shows you lose not just the texture you're trying to lose but also edge detail. Also to my eye it appears the effect is absent or far less pronounced (for the better!!) on her lower half, which is a little incongruous. I'd tone the blurring on her face and arm down to match the rest of her. Leave the blur effect on her hair though, I like how that looks.

Head alignment seems strange / lazy eye -- I don't see this at all?

too much bird's eye view -- I disagree. You're not all that high and a lower view would have been less flattering to her figure. Also, you'd lose the top of the guitar and it'd look like she was leaning on a strange black box with white trim. I think you picked your angle well

background separation would have been nice -- Yeah, some rim light or even just a bit of hair light would have been nice, but it's not a deal-breaker for me.

photoshop is horrid, she doesn't look human -- If it wasn't clear from what I said already, I think this is a major exaggeration.

One thing I will add about the photoshop though : it seems to me you overdid the healing brush / clone stamp removal of the circles under her eyes. You want to tone those way down but not 100% remove them, it looks a bit unnatural. Or, what do I know : it could be make-up, could be an artifact of the over-blurring, or could be she's a few years too young to be posing without her pants on

So I've gone on for a while but that's just what I do (!), my nitpicks are really pretty minor. Nice job.

Is that a real model? If so, she looks CG. If not, well... she looks CG.

I don't have much to add that hasn't been said already. PS work is overdone and I'd like to see more separation between model and background. I'd also like to see the guitar play a more prominent role in the image than just a leg rest.
