On a side note, how do you get smoother gradients in Photoshop? It's been bugging the heck out of me :S

sharagim1:
all comment welcome.

steven63:

For smoother gradients you might experiment with a gaussian blur layer.  I've not personally tried it but sounds like maybe it might help??

DCAO5718-2 looks very much like a magazine shot - did she really have that few wrinkles around her eyes?  I prefer a more natural look (leaving some wrinkles). Some texture appears lost making her face look one dimensional (also an affect of not having shadow).  Not saying that's a bad thing - depends on what type of shot she/you were going for.

Nubia Revisited: Great composition - very natural portrait.  Skin tones are wonderful.  Her facial tones appear different from her body tones and I don't know if that's attributal to the lighting or if that's how she really looks.  I would experiment with a mask over her face and bring the tone/lighting down slightly to see if you can bring it more in line.

DCAO3102-1 is a very nice file.  Only thing is the box reflection in the glasses is a bit distracting (for me).  I wonder how it would look with them photoshopped out or darkened? 

The other photos are too dark on my computer to comment about and I'm on a work computer that won't allow me to go to flickr.  That said this monitor is a piece of *^#* so maybe all of my comments aren't relevant.  Take'm with a grain of salt.

Thanks for sharing!  Good stuff!!

Needs a rim light for separation of her hair from the dark background.  Also, the eyes are a little softer than I'd prefer.
