First of all, love the photo. Catherine is one beautiful lady. I love the way you captured her expression on film. You managed to capture the moment so to speak. Also, in lessening the detail of the photo IMO you actually enhanced it. Love the blending of colors as well. Got a fan here.
its not a film , i wish it was its digital ,and yes i try to enhance in the level that retouching does not overcome the photography technique. Color blending usually is of my primary targets, if my colors does not blend, i dont shoot
