A cracking portrait Boss, lovely pose almost oil painting like.
However.............just a bit too dark at the edges for me especially the top of her hair and her pendant, a little over exposed.

Another great portrait Barrie.NIcely composed and I like the use of the plants and your models positioning, quite suductive! A couple of points, I think the blur around her works well but it seems to encroach a little on the top of her head which makes it almost bled in with the background. Also I think her locket has a little too much reflection on it and seems to glare somewhat. Other than that a beautiful shot.

The locket was a problem, it was just at the wrong angle and flashed back at me, I didn't notice it at the time. There is actually no softening around the top, it was a soft focus filter over the entire lens. I have no idea why it has softened more at the top.

Excellent photo Barrie and the scan has worked really great

Hi Barrie, Agree with George here, this does have the look of an oil painting and I love the effect of the soft focus filter. A really nice studio type shot. I can see why you love portraiture so much.

I liked it before and like it more now I know what it is, and how it was created. Superb.

Love it. Have to admit I would dearly love to be a portrait photographer if the end product looked like this one. Has a timeless appeal.

Echo Pal's comment.

Erm...having been at the end of Barrie's forgiving lens this looks a little austere to me. Coat is on and am leaving the building
Barrie  [Feb 24, 2006 at 08:56 PM]
This one was meant to be austere. There are others but unfortunately she is wearing a little less, she would kill me if I published them....

I echo the above comments Barrieā€¦Little more I can add except fantastic portrait. My personal favourite of your three recent portrait uploads. Good capture
