"Hi Doug.

Attached is a thumbnail of the photo I would like to post for retouching.
The subject is my daughter on her 16th birthday. I had asked for suggestions on dpreview but got few responses because people thought the picture was out of focus due to my inept Gaussian blur. The attached version has not been retouched.

I would like to ask your readers for a straight portrait retouch but also ask if people have thoughts about how to make it look like a painting, sketch etc.

Let me know your thoughts.

Love the site. Clearly a labor of love.

Bill"


Challenge: Retouch this photo as a portrait a father might love

Do your best to retouch "Sweet 16", 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
