Colour critique

Hi everyone

I'm a newbie to the forums here and just hoping a couple of you might be kind enough to offer me your thoughts on an image I've been practicing on today. In particular if anyone can offer a critique of my colour and tonal adjustments, eye brightening and / or skin smoothing I'd be grateful. Thanks everyone!

Danny

Re: Colour critique

Danny, personally I find the contrast too high. Some shadows have lost detail. Some tonal transition are too harsh for my liking.
Regards, Murray

Re: Colour critique

Hi Murray, thanks for your feedback. I agree, I'd gone over too far with those adjustments and it resulted in overkill. I really need to learn to dial it back a bit, it's sometimes tough to know when to stop and call it finished. Thanks again. I've attached a new version I did this afternoon which I hope is more moderate and an improvement.

Regards


Danny
