Good luck everyone :)

Here is my attempt. I tried to follow the stated guidelines
And not be heavy handed with the retouch.

That was good fun - and hard to leave alone!

*edited to remove all my comments on what I'd done - as I notice no-one else has!*

April 05 Contest Entry

Here are the basics of what I did...

I started with a levels adjustment on the midtones. Then I duplicated the layer and created a mask for the couple and punched up their saturation a little. Then I duplicated the background layer and added a slight blur to create a slight depth of field. Then I duplicated the couple layer and blurred that a few pixels to smooth out the skin tones and masked off the areas I didn't want and reduced opacity to produce a pleasing blend. Then, I carefully used the healing brush and patch tool to remove the 5 O'clock shadow from the groom. Then came the challenge... the bride's smile is from source1.tif. It was tricky getting the proper scale and perspective. In all, parts of her nose, cheeks, all of her lips and teeth, and part of her chin were replaced. Once that was done, the new smile and surrounding areas were color corrected to match and the same duplication and blurring were used to smooth out the skin tones. Once I was happy with all the details and saved the image, I used the measure tool along the window and rotated the canvas to straighten the image (that tilt was bugging me) and cropped it to create a nice balance in composition between the couple and their surroundings.

Ok here's mine. It is a 4X6 format so if they did ever want to use it they could. I also tried to keep it as real as possible (no blurry skin). If any one wants to see a close up I can post it. Mine looks better bigger I think. GREAT SUBMISSIONS so far... keep it up
