Much better than the other, Barry. Here eyes are beautiful, and the copper shines through in virtually everything.

We've worked together briefly before but spent a good chunk of time before shooting catching up and building a better rapport which with hindsight really helped the shoot go so well.

Thanks Trevor, I think this may be my favourite image from a day full of images I'm pretty chuffed with. It has to be said that I did the easy bit though, without a great subject it would be a snap.

Cheers Steve, this one really leapt out at me when I went through them.

This is easily my favourite of the set Barry.
Thanks Dave, it's my joint favourite with the chair one but either way I love this one.

Cracking shot Barry and especially so being colour blind, the colour's are very complementary and add to the overall image , mind you had some great material to work with, a very pretty young lady, well done sir.

Really nice shot and lighting, just a few things really stand out for me,
her face/skin is super matt and looks like you just put it portrait pro without masking ( that could be down to the low res image you have to upload to this site )
a lot of distracting hair including the one coming off her bra and on to her skin
and her elbow just looks strange sticking out.
Its a super good shot and I'm just saying what id change if I was editing it.

The loss of detail is due to the heavy use of a gaussuan blurred layer over the top in an ortonesque sort of fashion but I'll have a look at a less heavy edit and take care of the hairs and see which I prefer. Thanks for the cc!

That is one super portrait Barry. It has all the elements that we all strive for in trying to get "the one". Nailed it!
