    #2 seems way OOF to me.

    Yeah I quite possibly softened their faces a bit too much not sure...

    #2 does seem a bit OOF upon further inspection

    ya i think it's the eyes that are in need of the most sharpening.

    Ok so it's usually better to what do a 2px feather crop of eyes and then airbrush the rest?

    i usually just make a new layer, soften/airbrush, and then remove what i did around the eyes...but yea same effect just different method. what is your airbrush method anyway?


    edit: do it with the eyes and mouth

    My airbrush method is probably quite different then most :o Maybe I'll share my ways one day...:mamoru: It's a mixture of filters with different layers and masking certain areas.

    It seems to me that there should be more value separation between the model's hair and the background. Hair and background are so visually close that the eye doesn't want to separate the two.

    I think it's a little dark for my taste. :dunno:

    I'd adjust the levels a little.

    #2 is soft and both are underexposed.

    Looks like they were both standing right in front of the tree... move them out a foot or 2 if you can to get some separation from your BG

    Yeah sounds good that's what I'll do plus I'll back up zoom in lower the f/stop and get some nice blur/separation. I've been practicing my portraits because I'm shooting my friends wedding, in addition to the pro, for fun and experience.
