Hi Guys,

I am just working on some new shots I took a few days ago, I would like to get a few thoughts on the editing style and maybe any suggestions before I go any further because I feel like I need to give the shots an extra kick through the editing which I could maybe apply to the whole series, so far have only done general cleaning  some dodge burning.

I would really appreciate any reference to other editorials to demonstrate any editing you may suggest but im really running dry in terms of ideas right now!

Thank you

David

To me it looks good! Maybe just play with lights and colors!

Looks cool, I'd simplify camera left of the neck a bit, it looks so tense currently, that's the first thing that struck me.

That's pretty wild. Maybe just a little more cowbell ...

I tried this trick but using a motion blur and its really making it come to life, thanks!

How about a motion blur to the purse only.

Really like Matt's idea.
I find the whole shot to be a little distracting honestly. I'm not sure where to look. The bag stands out, but then so do the bright reds on the right side of the model's torso. I'd show it to the client along with a more mild version, but that's just me.
