Submitted by Amber Babcock:

Amber heeded my call for good face photos that could still use retouching. However, her selfportrait sat in my inbox for a long time, simply because I felt she's so pretty that no retouching was necessary, or even desired. But today I got to thinking, what if I'm wrong? What if someone with more imagination than I possess could make her even prettier? Well, here's your chance to prove me wrong.

Challenge: Retouch Amber to be as pretty as you can make her

Do your best to retouch "Prove Me Wrong", and post your detailed description plus the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you restore and how much you restore is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version

Well I don't think it's possible to make her any prettier, but I'll give a try at a retouch.

Here is beauty retouch of amber without any exaggerating. Skin is sharper then original with all details. Skin tone is natural not pinkish as original shot. You should have calibrated monitor to see real tones. sRGB profile embedded.

Bottom-line, Yes you are right she is beautiful, but her photo as almost any shot requires touchup to remove camera and lighting(double nose) exaggeration/shadows to reveal natural beauty.
p.s. From raw image I could get twice maybe even three times better result

Just nav to the Challenge you want and click Upload Photos. If you're viewing the Challenge you want, and it will automatically post under your name (and not here).

Not sure if this is in the right place, but I have added my version of Amber. I do hope it does her justice.
