I was asked by a friend to shoot another friend in some nighties to be displayed on a website for sale.

I really liked this image and turned it into a soft high-key. Hopefully the treatment is spot on.

Not much here with processing:

Got the color, contrast, and exposure right and then pushed the exposure up to where it looked high-key enough for me. Then I balanced the color again, cropped, and saved for submission.

I enjoy the 70's feel to this image. It is a nice fun image which I am sure the expectant mother/father/friends/family really enjoy. However for me, it is not enough to blow me away. The wow factor is missing for me and this piece is just another nice portrait.
