    Three takes on the same image.
    These were taken quite a few years ago when I was lucky enough to score a free pass to a lighting workshop.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    For me, deffo NOT 2nd. Last one I prefer. Don't think you want the light stand in the shot

    Agree, it is most distracting. Would you believe that I didn't even notice it when taking the shot.

    I'm the same as Steve. Definitely not #2. I prefer the treatment in the last.

    3-2-1 in that order, While i'm not a Painterly type I find that 2 is still better than 1.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.
    #1 is pretty much what the camera captured.
    #2 is my attempt at getting an oil painting effect. Maybe I would be better of using Topaz for this kind of effect.
    #3 is basically #1 minus the light stand.

    My concern was that there was too much "glow" on her forehead, cheek and chin.
    What are your thoughts on her skin texture, could it do with some touching up?

    3rd is by far the best one, maybe a touch of skin softening would improve it even more.
