Embarrasing but for the sake of this forum...

The lighting was crap, I had just set it up and it wasn't fine tuned. She was practicing the pose and I snapped to see what the lighting looked like. She liked the shot so it was up to me to retouch. I'd like to get an opinion on how I did?

Hi GlamGuru, I really like the pose. The eyes and nose area are done nicely and you didn't over do anything that I see.

I would soften/lighten the shadows on either side of her nose. The image is great overall, but the first thing my eyes went to was that almost feline looking nose due to the dark shadows.
