I feel honoured Pierre.
John, I appreciate the attention and processing you've bestowed on the image. The outcome is certainly better than the original post. Thank you so much.
And picture, of course, how would I know the model is lovely otherwise, ha!
Best regards Umashankar!
Whoops! Here is a smaller upload.

Smiling Great expression full of warmth. I wondered why all the negative space around such a face, so I brought up the rest of the image to see what you were originally working with. The high contrast works to keep the attention on her face---but a tighter crop would be to my taste for your image. I opened up some of the detail in my adjustment and, while it does reveal more clothing and hair detail, it may take away from your original high-contrast intention. Either way, I believe a tighter crop would improve the image. Happy shooting and post-processing.
I am convinced she smiles just for me, and that is a good thing - and a good picture.
Smiling for you Help me improve:
