cloned out a distraction

otherwise no processing done, no exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, nada ...

PS CC/ LR 2015.1

A nice gust of wind right when I pressed the shutter

Very nice, I prefer the skin tones to the last one.  She seems very natural , and pretty  :) .  With minimal PP, well done.  I very often take a good image and then really mess it up with PP  :( .

Muy bien Armando. There is actually a lot going on in this simple portrait ... and you blended them all very well together. My only negative is, IMHO, there may be a bit too much air on top. But I'm a nut for shooting tight. All-in-all ... Well done.

A very pleasing image Armando. She looks like she wanted you to take the photo, she is comfortable.

Eye contact and a natural smile. Those are excellent starting points for a great portrait.

She enjoys being in front of the camera, so it's easy to get good images

Thanks for commenting!!
