skin peeling in places is good, not in others, but overall I like it

your bkgd is competing with your image. Try a dark and sinister backdrop and you might have a great image.

I did not mind your previous background, as you seem also to have some depth to it, now the depth is lost as both fore and backgrounds are in sharp focus, and lit intensely, this is ok as long as the background compliments the focal range.

Done quickly I have fiddled with the background intensity and depth here: [img]

then here I have equalised the intensity & tonal ranges to match so the woman is now not looking out of place within the image: [img]

finally introduced some subtle background tones in the light to match the womans tones, and some extra low and highlights to the woman: [img]

just an idea, as I like the previous version, this new background is nice, but right now, in my opinion does not compliment or work for the main part of your work. Although nobody else seems bothered too much ha ha ;oP ah well, just some tips :O)
Eve Eve
i think this works better. You're the's entirely up to you whether you think this enhances your image.

also something I failed to say in my original vote/comment as I was rushed, the leaf veins make for very good blemish and veins on the woman, you controlled them well in their placement.

@Marco: Thanks for the tips! I'll work on an update in a few. I fiddled a lot with getting the background to match the color tone of the foreground, but didn't even bother to try and match the foreground to the background!
drknotter drknotter
@Marco: Tried to replicate what you did as best I could. Don't think I quite got it, but I still think it looks much better! Thanks again!
