Taken the other day while experimenting with some speedlites.
This shot has gone through about three different editing revisions, and I still can't quite settle on it. Regardless, I decided to post it anyway. Feedback is encouraged and requested! Especially if you see any blatant errors or unsightliness.
I don't get many opportunities to edit pictures like this because, well, I mostly shoot pictures of cats. It was certainly a lesson in skin softening, and "prettifying" a photo, or, in other words, "making it look fake without looking fake."
You know what I mean. Don't make me use more words.
Of course, Rayana is naturally beautiful. But, still, I'm trying to progress toward a certain caliber of skill in both photography and editing, so I had to take full advantage of the opportunity to mess with this picture as much as possible.
