Sorry, it seems my PS skills are far better than my Dropbox and Quicktime skills :)

Anyway MkII.

I just did a 3 minute screen capture of my PS5 work flow, it really is incredibly simple. Here it is for anybody interested. The resultant image is below.

Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

This is what I would do. Maybe crop a bit tighter.

But I would also enhance the skin tones and lighten the eyes and reduce the brightness of the background.
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.

I like the wall and would leave it.  The door handle is a little prominent, and I'd be curious if it looked better without it.

My version above has the door handle cloned out...

Please forgive the appalling quality, I don't do video for a very good reason  :)

I redid the video with a commentary after realising how limited the value it has without one. Here is the new link

How about this one. I cant get it lighter around the right eye though. Not sure how. Cant get the skin color exactly as I want it either.
What are your thoughts on this one.
Attached a bigger file this time.

I like this one, and the tighter crop draws attention to the eyes :)
