    Well put Robert! But I do like her work, obviously the production of it all was very well thought out.

    There’s no doubt that Julia is a talented photographer; however, I am not a fan of her retouching. To me, they look too over-processed especially with the eyes and the photos look like CGI characters

      I always wonder why people say things like this. Style is subjective. It’s her style, and it’s well done. It’s not my style, but I have the breadth of experience to recognize the work that went into these. If it’s not your style, why would you even bother to say something negative? Why wouldn’t you just move on to the next article?
