Hi,
I do not post much since I'm no pro photographer but I wish to learn with your help....
here is one of the latest photos.... would appreciate your C&C....

Should I clone out the reflection in the sunglasses? Do I need to do more of the contrast on the photo?
Thanks Zak

It is difficult to determine the contrast, since monitors vary so much. It looks about right on my screen.

The reflection;;; I believe if there was one reflection in each lens, instead of one large on in the middle, it would be more interesting.

Looks "muddy" at the bottom, so more fill and or accent lights to separate the subject.

Yes, get rid of the reflection in the glasses. Also, be careful not to soften the skin too much. As far as contrast, I feel that's a matter of style so go with what you feel is right, what's -your- style? =)

Best,
Alan
