My portrait to share

Hi everybody
This is my second after "meet me" thread..

You are doing here great jobs!! I'm new in photography as well as in retouching so I want to share one of my portraits in raw format to practice and also learn from you how to improve it (I'm only starting to learn little bit). It is "oversunny" a bit and has bad shadow on the left eye.

here is link to download raw file

Looking forward for your work

Beautiful model skauskas.
I did the bw conversion in raw. Fixed some blemishes in photoshop. converted to a quadtone. Don't laugh, my first try at a tat.

Re: My portrait to share

Ilona, I think for starting out you are doing very good..

Judging from just this one photo, you seem to have an artistic eye toward composition

Just remember that even even when you are outdoors in the bright sunlight... lighting is very important and needs to be set up properly, at the minimum using some type of fill for good results.

My really quick cleanup of just the face of the model

Did a vertical crop after straightening..
additional cloning to fill in the blanks..
Still needs work but shows other things that could be done
