Here's the final image, after it's gone through it's image production and enhancemenst steps. I would consider this a standard workflow, with typical time involved to do everything being less than 5 minutes.
There are a couple of areas of the original image though, that need some additional attention...
* My personal style of shooting, has my camera settings setup to give me maximum flexibility in image control and quality. While they do necessitate some post-production steps, they eliminate problems in capture, that can be a pain to deal with after the fact. See Part 1 of this Tutorial for full explanation.
As I look at the original image above, I'd like to bring a bit more attention to the subject, and as this was shot very quickly ( 11 mins available ) there are some issues with her pose that are unflattering, with the surfboard, background rack and overlit wetsuit needing work. These could have been fixed during the session, with more time given to styling, the subjects balance while posing, and some scrims for my lighting... Doing so however would have blown the window of opportunity, so I consider them minor inconveniences in making my subject comfortable and getting images that would otherwise never happened.
