| p.1 #1 · A couple from yesterday - HELP with processing... |
Managed to grab a few shots of my lovely lady yesterday but just can't settle on the processing, at all. I'm relatively happy with where I've got to on these but just feel they're not quite there. Of course I welcome all critique so please do feel free to comment on poses, positioning, lighting etc, but especially interested in your thoughts on processing this time....

I'm quite happy with this one. I would like to improve my skin smoothing skills but overall I'm quite satisfied with how this has turned out, considering the overall shot that is.

This one is just irritating me. I can't quite put my finger on it but something about it looks a little odd to me. From an overall portrait perspective I think it is lacking some rim lighting to improve separation of the model from the background and add some pop to her hair. The lighting was very poor yesterday and I didn't have my flash kit available so was shooting at iso 1250. This affected the sharpness and crispness of the image I think, and the flat lighting has left the image quite flat itself. But I'm sure you processing wizards could make this image much better regardless. Thoughts?
