My daughter, Lottie, star of many a DPC photo!

I used the screen feature on all but the eyes to brighten the skin tones, and then did a lot of cloning at a low percentage to get rid of skin problems. A bit of dodging and burning here and there, too.

This might have been more effective if you'd cropped out the eye on the right. leaving her right eye and her red hair.

Returning to make comments: There's a lot I like about this photo. The auburn hair and pale skin play against eachother very well. The vibrance of the eyes, which you can tell are naturally this bright from the subtle color variances, are specially shocking. While I enjoy the glow the skin, I would like to have seen the freckles and the eybrows preserved more. The composition in the left 2/3rds is very strong, but I feel as if the right eye is lost in all this wonderful porcelain skin. Keeping that eyebrow I think would have solved this for me. Very lovely. 9

The hair certainlt gets through. The eyes are razor sharp and as such I would have liked more definition of the skin, specially about the nose. Bumping up.

This is one of my favorites in the challenge. The color, the style and the angle are all creative additions to the full work of art. 10

the other eye does not show very flattering - why not cut the image in half

The red of her hair is certainly vibrant, but I think you should have given that more attention and more space in the image, as right now, it seems that the eyes are the most attention getting. Yet, there's something weird looking about her left eye (not sure what that is, though). Also, I don't like the bleached look of the skin around the eyes and forehead as it has no detail.

Beautiful composition. I wonder if onl the hair and right I would have been more effective. The very light skin tone is a wash out, But that is only my opinion. BOL

Good use of lighting to set off her hair color.

Beautiful color. I am not sure it says anything to me about resourcefulness. Still, a nice shot.

very nice...i think it could hve been better if the space between the eyes was not so washed out, and you could see the bridge of the nose a little better...beautiful eyes, and who doesnt love those freckles!
