Here's another portrait of Rhowan; the last of the shots I'll be posting from our recent holiday on the Black Sea coast. As with my previous image, the main change that was made to this one was in terms of altering the tone (as described in my Toning Colour Images tutorial). I also used quite a few of the techniques covered in my Portraits: part one tutorial, particularly in terms of lightening and bringing out the detail in her eyes.

As always, let me know your thoughts, particularly in terms of whether you think the toning is effective.
