|My fella and I were shooting a lingerie set with this model in her home and she had sunglasses I liked, so shot a few close-in headshots with them. I liked the results. Not good enough for a free study challenge, I know but hey ho; I expect a low score as it's a little soft in places but bugger it. :-)
Edit: Cropped, adjusted brightness/contrast, raised the magenta colour channel and lowered the others, cloned out a couple of specks and a blemish, denoised, sharpened and resized.

During challenge: This is actually doing a lot better than I thought it would, I had actually anticipated a 4-something score but I've held steady in the 6s so far! Very pleased with that. Currently at:
Avg Vote: 6.3596
....with a favourite. Better than I could have hoped for. I'm sure it'll go down before the end of the voting but I'll be happy to have a 6s score in a free study. :-)

About an hour to go: Dropping swiftly, just hit 6.16. The last-minute trolls are kicking my ass, sigh. :-( If it stays in the 6s though I'll be happy, that'd be a first for me in a free study.
