Challenge: Free Study 2008-05 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Canon

This was from a last minute senior portrait shoot in our home studio. It has been very nice to be working with people other than those that live n my house.

We actually have a color version of this image printed and framed along with the original image straight from camera as an example of what editing we do. A proper before and after. There was NI used on her skin along with cloning and healing. I tried not to go too far with it - I may have though.

Thank you for the votes and comments.

I have to say, it's an awesome image either way. I've got a real soft spot for B&W though, and this one was very nicely converted. Everything is so smoooooth. Nice job!

This is an excellent edit! I like the way you covered up the gap in her hair, that was genius.

Great portrait! Thanks for posting the original, it's always good to see the post processing choices that others make in their portraits. I'm sure she is (or will be) ecstatic with this image! Nicely done.

Amazing image, Tim!! The lighting and contrast are spot on.

One of my first thoughts also was,"does that girl have perfect skin or is that neat image?"

Tim, this is different for you! I love the b and w conversion...just that little Neat Image thing I mentioned - but I might be wrong about that...let me know if you used it or not, I am interested...she looks stunning and those eyes have really connected with the lens

Timmy,

I liked this image on the other site, and I like it here as well.

The only critique I would have is the blacks are too deep, but it doesn't bother me. The tonal value of the skin tones was my first impression.

Very well crafted basic b/w portrait.

stunning face...b and w tones are great...did you use neat image here? it seems there is a little too much plastic from some kind of noise reduction, but other than that, bueatiful 7
