Hi Jim,

A very nice and most interesting portrait. I find the lighting and shadowing aweome. For me, either the make-up or the PP is a bit over-done though.

I think you missed your depiction of the fall season by several leaves. By and large she is laying in a bed of dead foliage. I think if you included more leaves and of a 'fall' color you would have nailed the 'fall' season. I don't think this would detract from your model rather I think it would enhance her. Your thoughts? You depicted winter in this shot.

Thanks for sharing,

I do agree that I overdone the high-pass sharpening and over smoothed the skin a bit. Here it is with those two factors toned down. What I also did was NOT let Lightroom sharpen it on export, which definitely oversharpened the image again.

As for the leaves, I do wish for better looking fall leaves, haha. Unfortunately, I didn't get enough of them, lol.
