Strangely enough, it's a lot easier to edit someone else's pictures.

[It looks a tad dark compared to the original, but he wanted haughty]

It was too large to upload to MTG which is why I am posting it here.

It's a little bit too dark for my taste, the colors get too muted. But the overall impression is somewhat more "focussed".
Next time I definitely have to remember putting her farther away from the wall and using a larger aperture.

You can mute out the wall by having her further away, sure.

But here the gaps in the wall frame her lovely eyes, fine by me.

I have two monitors, seems they both need colour calibration!

So part of the darkness is crappy setup, but also her skin looks
a little better and her expression seems a little clearer.

As usual with these exercises, I learned something: Portrait Mode for Portraits!
