[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was shot during an outdoor location shoot with my strobist rig. All the images were cutsy teen fashion but I wanted to edit a pic into something a bit more dramatic for the model...i got a bit carried away...
Some of the proccessing includes rotating perfectly vertical, cut and mirror on exactly the centre-line, highpass filter, levels. After all this the image looked super-artificial and she looked squint. It all became believable when I cloned out the catch-light in one eye, and recreated in the same position as the other eye.

Not a masterpiece, just a bit of fun pushing editing (by my standards).

HI Johan,
I like this portrait approach with such a tight crop concentrating on the beautiful face features of this gorgeous model!
Great stunning eyes which are the focal point of this lovely composition. The other members of the face are there to enhance this superb presentation.
Very good diffused lighting and perfect PP work.

Bonjour Johan
Image très singulière avec cette symétrie parfaite du visage...Cela me fait penser au personnage du film de Luc Besson "Le cinquième élément"
Bravo pour cette création.Catherine
