I have never been really good at post processing and have been trying to take more time on it. Hoping to get some comments and critiques on how it looks and anything that might make it better.




Thanks!
Jeff

First, great shot...

Second I am not a Post-Process expert...

But FWIW, I think the shot is processed well, maybe it looks a bit soft - but that may be just the process you used on her skin. Sometimes overdone... but not in this case... you took it to the edge but not over - my opinion.

The first thing that sticks out to me is the hot spot on her right elbow... but I bet that was there from in camera and a pain to deal with. EDIT = now i see the same thing on the side of her body (her right our left).

Overall great job... I can see lots of ad copy along the left hand side of the page... makes for a great shot for an ad...

Thanks for the comments. I probably should have worked on the hotspots on her right side. This proves I need to take more time in editing!

Nice shot. I would have cropped it a little tighter. I don't care for the deadspace on the left, but that's my opinion.

What a beutiful Model and nice shot,

I may be in the minority, but I love the negative space on the left side. Giving the Image a different look from normal.

as for Post-Processing, I like the overall softness of the skin but would sharpen the eyes a bit. Also I think a little trimming of her right upper arm with the liquify tool will improve the look of this image a lot.

JMHO....cheers
KC

Thanks for the comments. The reason I left the space to the left is for the very reason... it's different. I like it but I probably use it a bit too much!

Good observation about the liquify tool. I probably should use it but it scares me! lol I am not very good at it so instead of practicing, I don't use it. Doesn't make sense, I know, but I will have to break myself of that bad habit.

I shot Erica last year funny enough. I'm with KC, but either liquify or use the dodge and burn to contour the upper arm.

The liquify tool isn't that bad to use. I was playing around with it one day and was like wow, i can trim body parts. Just play with if for a whil and you will get the hang of it. Aside from the hot spots on her right side i think this is a nice shot.
