Nice photo of a lovely model. It looks a bit dark to me, although that is probably just personal taste. Also the lighting has made her front teeth a bit too prominent. Maybe brighten the teeth to the right?

Thanks for the advice - i wander if my comp screen needs calibrating as it looks darker on the works computer compared to my laptop at home. I will have to get to grips with photoshop and look at those teeth as you are right there.

Lovely.....and the photo is not bad either. It looks a tad dark but I personally don't mind this in this particular instance as this helps draw the eye to the outline of the model and as she is also in black (?) and then up to the face and eyes (shame there is no glint in the left eye), overall this works for me.

Let me know how you go on with the colour calibration as I am having the same trouble between PC monitor and laptop montitor.
