I guess this is the best I can do.
Is there anything else?
You are welcome to retouch and post.
Thanks

Euro

The lighting and skin tone are beautiful. Good job!

The eye catchlights are tiny and the irises very dark. I tried to give them more relief and detail. Also, the girl's hair went too dark on my monitor. I used shadow/highlight to reveal more detail.

Edit: It occured to me that the intent is likely to print these. So I set the proof setup to Working CMYK, turned Gamut Warning on and, with the sponge tool on desaturate, I toned down the pixels that were too hot for CMYK.

How can I fix the catchlights and irises?

I tried dodge tool (hightlight / exposure 50%) but did not like result.

Thanks

Hi Euro!

Welcome to RP!

Great shots!!! But, not having seen the originals, is difficult to say what else, if anything at all, could be done ....

For the catchlights, I use this very simple method:

* Create a new blank/empty Layer on top of the others ...

* With a very soft/fuzzy white Brush (Opacity set to 20-30%) simply paint the catchlights on it.

If the result is too strong, simply blur your catchlights Layer and/or lower its opacity ...
