I'm always looking to improve and grow

These two images are examples of what I am currently producing.  Both were shot in my studio, using my Nikon D700, sigma 50mm, and two soft boxes; one large one facing the side and another smaller one overhead.
The goal of the shoot was to produce head shots for this 12yo aspiring actress.  A dramatic expression led to a grungier edit, with a texture overlay which I really loving.  I think I find the grunge edit more interesting, especially considering most edits I do involve cleaning and smoothing.  What do you think?  Drop me a line.  I'd love some feedback.  Cheers!
