Sarah D. Kiefer 04/25/2007 19:58you want the tough critique, eh? : ) well, i see a beautiful soft and emotional portrait. very natural with appropriate lighting imo. maybe a bit more on her face to give it contour? only notable things i see are in the black bg. clone out the line above her head and the hair (??) at right so she merges with the black. light on the left slipper could come down a bit, soften those shadows, but overall, i just really like this!! sorry not much critical help!
