Wow, it looks almost fake to me. That must be a lot of processing that you had to do to make it look like that (I can actually see a few traces of it, but the photo looks very nice overall).

Well, loads of PP or not, it's a stellar result - even if too 'clean'.
You did well with bringing out eye detail - and I like the lighting setup employed here.
Well done and thanks for sharing.

Thanks, yeah it took quite a while to get this style down right! because I had a lot of "messy" images getting to this point.

Thanks

It really does look almost perfect, actually the only areas that I really noticed your post processing work was near where her hair was near her face, it looks like it's a little bit faded out and blurred together a little too much there.

Well you've definitely improved a lot since then. I actually couldn't tell if you had post processed it or if the model was just that perfect in the first place until I noticed those few things in there.

Oh trust me if anyone wants to do this style with the right teacher it would take them no time at all. I always recommend people get coffee with local photogs, network and just talk! Like now I'm looking for a new apprentice in my local area.

Wow, obviously a lot of work. I vote for the almost fake look, like an "Old Navy" commercial. But you've certainly mastered the look.. I'm curious about the "before" shot. The womqn seems like a she's a natural beauty
