[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another shot of cindy, this time i cropped part of her behind because for me perhaps it's awkward if i'll include some of her parts, because of her pose.

PP Work:
Gaussian blur for blurring the BG, smart blur and surface blur to soften her skin, USM for sharpening her eyes,and some dodging and burning.

Hope you like this one.

Gorgeous portrait of this sweet fine looking model and I do like the pose and POV. However whatever you said you cut out could,t have been that bad for sure...The skin colour rendered looks warm/amber and is this due to morning light or deliberate pp alteration/WB setting? Just curious. Nice work!



Issues of skin blur etc aside, which is a matter of choice of course, if you had moved further back and used a longer focal length to get this same shot, you wouldn't need to use gaussian blur for your background: the lens would do it for you. Of course, you might need a higher ISO and a slightly wider aperture.
Kudos to your model, she's beautiful and posed well for you. Lighting is nice here too.
