Love this series of photos. One request, can you take a shot of the model smiling? She's beautiful anyway, but add a smile and I'm sure she'd glow.

Cool. I'll have to check them out. I was just thinking, she reminds me a little of Penelope Cruz. Only better. She looks really down to earth. Thanks for sharing.And keep up the good work!

Great, except I think there's too much yellowish hues on her hair. Kinda contradicts color of her hair from the the other shot: [link]

It's just that I check those kind of stuff at work, when doing color correction for video - no matter what color correction etc, you'd ike to have same skin tones and hair etc.

As a director I agree with you for video, in stills if it is a layout using multiple images, maybe I agree but in this case as stand alone images I don't see it as an issue.

I see what you are saying it just was not important to me when color correcting the images.
