Re: my first attempt at using D&B

The white of the eyes is a little too white and the hair is a little too sharpened. I would also like the shadow under her nose softened.
I would prefer a version that included both women, as long as you crop out the open field and unblock the dark tones on the second woman. I find the interaction between the two subjects interesting.

Re: my first attempt at using D&B

I think you did great!

Personally I would have cropped even tighter and brightened up a few things as shown below... BUT that is just me.. I think yours is fine!

Re: my first attempt at using D&B

Thanks for all your input. Sorry for the spelling errors. I am a cancer servivor and have had som congitive problems from the chemo. Guess I should use spell check but didnt think about it. After taking all your input in I took out some reds and softend the shadow under the nose and the whites of the eye,The total work time it took me is around 8 hours with about seven differant layers. Sometimes I over do it cause to me a photo is never finished. I always have to pick out something and try to fix it..LOL. Here is a link to the redone picture also tried to resize the thumbnail again. Thanks again for your imput

No its a picture from my wifes belly dance class, cairo fusion that performed at a big hippy fest at eagle Island state park in Boise Idaho. Goddesfest is latter in the year. Which I believe they are performing in.
