Welcome, Linda. I moved your thread into this forum (Critiques), where you can get the type of feedback you're looking for.

For openers, the images you uploaded are too small to assess.

How to fix: Click the Edit button in your post above and engage the "Manage attachments" dialog again to upload larger, replacement images. Once you've done that it will be easier to give feedback.

PM me if you need further assistance.

lindal,

welcome to RP

like danny said, too small. a good, readily viewable size for an image around here is around 600 x 800 or thereabouts. doesnt have to be exactly that and there's no real rule on this, but generally something that when you click on the image to view it it pretty much fills the screen without having to scroll much to see all of it.

and i'll be sure to remind danny that your name is lindal and not linda

Craig

agree with Craig on that one, just on the postage stamp size images, the first one (to my eye), looks cleaner and smoother, but so hard to tell at that size

Ya done good on replacing the first pics with larger ones.

You didn't by chance get them switched around, did you? To me the one with "original" in the file name looks more "glowing" than the one with "glow" in the file name. In any event I prefer the look of that one.

i have to agree with danny here. the 'original' looks better, more natural. the 2nd looks retouched, a bit smudgy here and there and a bit too much yellow on the skin in places.
