One look at your work, and no need for words, you seem to be very experienced in this area. I'm looking forward on your tutorial. Maybe you can offer some tips on hair, make-up and so on.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

congrats faustina,

simply had to be your entry that took top spot as the result of your efforts was fantastic and hope that you can find the time to let us know how you achived the results and as important how you identified what you wanted/needed to do in the first place.

cheers,

nacoya

A much deserved 1st place faustina. Your work on that photo was amazing, and looking through your site I can see the high standard you work to.
I didn't think my simple job would get anywhere near the top 3, so thanks to all for the votes
Very Quick run through what I did.
1/ Used clone/spot healing brush to remove stray hair and blemishes, and removed background. Then ran Photoshop Auto levels.
2/ duplicate layer and erased all but the skin, then run surface blur filter.
3/ Duplicated layer again and erased all but eyes, hair, mouth, earrings and eyebrows. Cloned hair from top of head to fill gap under right ear, then increased contrast a little.
4/ Took a photo of the sky, and changed colour to match skin tones etc. Then moved it to the background layer.
5/ Flatten image and resize for entry

Very simple method, as I like to keep it fast n simple
