Re: my first attempt at using D&B

I liked the sharp hair. Everyone has their personal preferences! I did agree that the left eye was too white.

It's amazing what you can learn just by reading other peoples' critiques. I am not trained to look for subtle shadows, but once someone pointed out the shadow under her nose, it jumped out at me. You did a good job on toning it down.

I liked the sharp hair as well. Every one has there owne taste. But the wife one out and said it was to sharp as well. I didnt see the shadow either till it was pointed out. With each persons point of view I get a better insite of what to look for. Thanks again

I think your retouch is a nice improvement to the picture. Good job.

The only thing I kinda notice that bugs me just a bit, is her eyes look a little flat / one solid color with no shadows. Maybe that's how the original picture was? Just something to think about.
