Hi guys my first post as im a real newbie here.
Was taken a few months ago in my home studio, my first real attempt at high key.

Interesting processing. Kind of adds a lot of texture which is usually the opposite effect you go for when post processing female models.

So newbie here ... but obviously not a newbie with the camera. Not with your own home studio and lighting gear ;)

The exposure is nicely handled overall here and the eye looks great...but I'm with MA on the PP here.

Great Highkey studio style shot. The eyes are fantastic. I would try a mask over the skin and soften the texture a bit.

Wow, nice shot! How much post process has the photo been through so far? Being able to see the texture of the skin adds another level of realism you don't get to see usually.

Taking the comments by fellow members i have softened the skin tones on this image any comments would be gratefully received.

I think even with the softening the over-sharpening effect is too harsh for my liking at least.
