awesome shots rodi! I'm glad the makeup artist did a more minimalistic job this time, since she's naturally gorgeous.

What did you do in post (especially in that first pic of her headshot)?

Interesting opinion. I think just the opposite, seeing the processing I think, "The halo adds to the effect." In subjective evaluation there'll always be polar-opposite views.

Great image. Normally I'd straighten the outer buildings, but here I think that their inward lean points to the subject building, making it more dramatic.

i kind of like them without the halo as well. here's what i do to keep the effect but not the halo:

keep your unsharp mask on a separate layer and mask out the edges. you may need change the Levels on the mask only (it's white or black, so you just slide the black and white levels to be a shade of grey without messing up your mask painting).

i do this all the time when i want to add some pop without making it really noticeable with the halos that a strong USM processing does.

remember to switch hands, you don't want one arm more muscular then the other.
