There seems to be a lot og jpg artifacts in these shots. Really there is too much noise to give a fair critique. I would say that the last one is the best from what I can tell though.

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. I do have larger versions of these files but was hesitant to display them due to concerns about longer download times. I typically push up 40-60k files to reduce download time. Would you elaborate on what you mean by seeing artifacts causing concerns about judging the image? For example here is the image you considered the best of them in 100k+ size

jpg Artifacts... I am guessing you are doing a save for web or something and using a lower quality setting. When you do that the pixels get funny looking and the images dont look sharp. In the image you just posted it looks 100% better. The only thing I see now that I would change is maybe softening the skin just a little bit. Not so it looks fake, you need to keep the texture but just a touch would make an improvement to me.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I am compressing at a lower quality setting to reduce size. I will post with the higher image quality in future

The best size to post is a maximum of 600 pixels as most of yours were, but the filesize for something at that size should range from 50 to 80K not 20 or 30 K as yours does. I use Save for Web in Photoshop and I always set it to Very High. It has been my observation that almost all members of GG have either DSL or Broadband cable connections, so photos in the 70K range will load almost instantly. Now days its always better to go for quality and not worry about the filesize. This example of Liz is very rich in detail so it came out just over 100K:



PS: It is not necessary to say "nudity warning" unless you are just trying to get more people to look at your post. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks I will use the larger format from now on.

Wasn't trying to get attention, just thought I would post it that way to avoid someone opening it at the office and getting into trouble.
