Ah for the good old days...
when I could have dodged her face under the enlarger. I miss all those things your hands could do while printing, but now I use only tools that make whole-frame changes. Is the glow around her shoulders the result of each of you building a photoshop mask, or is it really in the image? I envision this image when you can see Yael's face and hair, but the outside is glowing against a darker wall than your two versions. And the two dolls (actually they are the male and female mascots of the Torino winter olympics in 2006) should really glow from their backlight. I think I could have done all this in Brovira #3 but I haven't taken the time to learn enough Photoshop. There are experimental tools that greatly simplify indicating intentions like this, and use image understanding and machine learning tricks to do more or less what you have in mind, but they are not in mainstream products yet.
Of course a gold reflector, held by an assistant for fill light, would have done the trick nicely, but that wasn't part of the scene I was photographing.
Anyway, I am glad that you liked it.
