This is a picture I took of my little sister in my parents backyard. I had my husband hold a black cloth behind her while my other little sister reflected light in. I am actually really pleased with the results that I got. I wanted it to be high contrast, but at the same time still bring out her eyes. One problem that I couldn't fix with the basic editing is the orange tint on her face right by her hair line. I am hoping that I won't get docked down for that, but I wouldn't be surprised if I do. For post processing I pretty much just boosted the contrast and changed the levels and played with curves until I liked it. Then I resized it for the web.

The earring takes away the focus from those beautiful eyes.

The earring matching her eyes was a clever idea. Lovely model, wonderful portrait.
