what you guys think?

Hi again, posted a few days ago with some edits i had done of a friends jpegs just to have a little practice with curves, but then decided i would like to do it properly and start in raw then move on to photoshop.

I am in RAW atm and would love to know what you guys thing, really quite happy with this but then i believe one cant judge your own work, so would love to hear your thoughts and any suggestions.

Thnks =)

What can I say, very extreme. You definitely get top marks in that regard.

Re: what you guys think?

Well, I don't know if it is good or bad. If you were aiming for an eye-stopping portrait, you definitely have that. Is it to my taste and style, no, but then one has to evolve in life and perhaps your photo will help me evolve. Also, from past experience, a belief I have is that if something (such as a photo) appeals to me immediately, that is not always really the best. Things that "look nice" on first glance are sometimes more like "eye candy" and not really something that you will look at again and again and see and learn more from the more you look. Hope this makes sense. In that respect, I will keep looking at your photo, and I may begin to appreciate more and more.

In that regard, might I ask why such extreme hair - in both style and color?

I like it. It is quite extreme but thats mainly due to the hair! Focus is on the face which is nice. Her back has gone a little blue compared to her face... Her hair by her face has also gone a little blue so looks a bit odd comapring to theres tof her hair... Maybe etching down the 'Blend if' on 'Underlying layer' in layer Styles will help hold it off the highlights of the hair?

nice job though!
