Hi,
Here are some photos of my good friend and beautiful friend also. With her I did some light set up testing and some photos came out interesting so I want to print one in a big dimension to give her... WHICH ONE.....?

Also all C&C are welcome considering the photos, psd work, light setup...everything...

I would say #1 is your best bet... however not to sure about the PS work. The skin tones on her cheek look off to me and the overall look is just a bit to hot. Can you pull detail into the background and shirt on the left side?

All in all a very good effort!

Number one, you have a beautiful looking friend (IMHO).

Personally, I think your first attachment is the best. However, I would reconsider using the border, it does nothing to add to the beauty of this young woman. Keeping the same picture dimensions, you may want to consider bringing up the bottom left and bottom right corners of the crop to lose the expose parts of the arms. A tad hot (maybe) on you friends right cheek and forehead (at least that's the way my monitor is displaying it). Perhaps a little "brush" work will help in those areas. Only my opinions of course, it's all subjective. Thanks for the post, nice work!

Zak -
You know your friend's personality better than we - I suggest that you choose to compliment her, not necessarily the image we jointly declare "best."
That said, all the images are good - although number three doesn't really work for me - her hand seems caught awkwardly. I agree that the first is probably the most glamorous one. Number two is possibly most reflective, But I'd probably choose number five, the 3/4 length, as it shows not only a beatiful woman, but conveys elegance, poise and grace, IMO. But those are my impressions - again, you know her, we don't.
Nice work. Thanks for sharing.

Hey, thanks to all of you for your comments I appreciate it.....

As you see the photos are not equal with the color cast, or exposure..etc... I;m still trying to find the best solution for my taste of photography at least when these kind of shots are in consideration....
that is why all photos are made attentionally like they are...that means for example on the first photo I did those strong highlights on her face in order to give more of kind of glamour, more of the shining look, why, without it looks kind of flat.... you know what I mean.... I do not know if I did it too much maybe on the first but on the rest I think I did not burn the skin I hope I just put the highlights on the edge .....

I like the lighting and the pose of number two, plus I find myself staring at her teeth in #1.

All are really nice,..that said,..my little nitpic is, the catch lights in #4 look a little strange to me, being so large and centered in her pupils.
My choice for a print is #1

Thank you very much for your support and suggestions.....
I appreciate it....

PS. I was using a large octagon soft box 1.7m wide, that is why there is big reflection in her eyes, but also I put it very close to the model as my room was small for that kind of soft box.....
