    Bujin rules state only 5 images per post, can you remove two and repost - I appreciate it breaks up the flow of the technique but rules are rules.

    I also think this ought to be moved across to Photography Tips where I think it is better suited.

    At first you are right about the rules

    Second, this topic ought to be at portraits, thean I react at comments on my portrait pictures about to much proceeding, therefore I try to make clear, that the criticasters are wrong!
    Third, by dividing the pictures into two topics, one cannot follow the proceedings exactly!
    But international laws said, that there must be options to break the rules
    Fourth, I like this site and therefore I try to help the members!

    Ease up on the noise removal and sharpening.

    Your noise removal is WAY too strong in my opinion.

    I agree. Freckles are pretty, and that's what she's got. You don't want to take away from who she really is or how she really looks.

    Also, are you normally saving after each step? I know you did here to show us. But if you do that can break apart the fragments and screw with the end result. Try to do all your editing at once and only do one save.

    I pretty much prefer the warmer pic -- last one before adjusting color temperature. Much warmer, much richer, much better, in my humble opinion

    i'm sure the OP has learned and changed his workflow accordingly in the past two years.
