Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

See what you can do with the picture of this young lady.

For my version I used Photoshop:
Curves;
Buzz Pro;
Smudged with Linda's Brush and Sarsa's Hair Brushes using lighten, darken and normal modes;
Lots of Dodging and Burning with 1 to 4 pixel brushes;
Trimoon's Cotten Canvas applied selectively with layer mask;
Curves again;
Nik Sharpener Pro.

Have fun using your creativity.

Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

Ziaphra, yours is a stunning interpretation. With the face lighting you created it really becomes the dominate element since the red hair no longer competes for the eyes attention.
