Beautiful closeup.

I would prefer less bluring, especially the corner of the mouth. When the shot is this close, I expect more pores and features.

I think it is a beautiful image, but one thing I see here - maybe its just me, but seems almost as though she has a 5 o'clock shadow in orange? Other than that, beautiful!

LOL, Craig

I noted the bloodshot eyes. Otherwise, except as noted above, good job.

dee dee

and looking at this again, after the comment about the orange, i tend to agree. the cheeks and chin do have a definite orange tint.

Yup, you are both right, but I tried to keep it the retouching as close to the original as possible as the photographer wanted this orange glow on the right!

Thanks for the comments

Looks good - possibly a bit too much - but its hard to tell without seeing the original
