black&white conversion from a older shooting.
i had 2 months habitus and now i am fiddling to get back to my old "form"

I like the imperfections in this photo: her lips, the blurred hand - kind of distracting, but not too much, small "skin issues" and yet her fierce gaze ...

That hand adds an extra dimension to elevate the image above others of a similar nature (that don't have the hand) :-)

I like a few skin issues, that 100% perfect look has no humanity.

so mine is good or bad?

Mate your stuff is always good, you didn't push the retouch until she stopped looking human, I appreciate that.

Really think this speaks to beauty Not being about the skin. Nice.
