This was the hardest contest to narrow done to ONLY 5!
I looked at overall skintone, colorcast and natural looking retouch.
1 - Artfolio
2 - Soleah
3 - Ferdverfel
4 - Gary Richardson
5 - MinnGal
Wow.. great entries. What a task. I was following the discussion for the contest, and it seems that making the photo the best it could be would include things like strap and shadow removal so I gave points for the extra effort. Since it wasn't a glamor retouch I discounted images that had any obvious changes to the facial structure or features.
1. likenew - very believable "snapshot" all the way around. Good job on removing the straps and reducing the shadow.
2 - Lorraine - nice job on skin retouch - very pretty image- just enough to look natural. Good job on hair and strap removal.
3. Artfolio - really nice job all the way around; hair, strap, blemish, shadow removal, however, the skin was blotchy.
4. VeryWierd - nice skin, color, very natural, however, strap removal is obvious on the shoulders, and you left the harsh shadow.
5. dkcoats - nice retouching .. just a little outside of a "snapshot"
Too many good entries I could have picked another 5.

Please post the votes in the voting thread...do not PM them to me. That was a typo on my part (copied an old contest and didn't catch that change). So far no one has PMed me.
4. Wendy Bobz
Honourable mention to Camile, Lonk, Mendensmall and Infinite Monkey.
This was very thought to pick...
Sorry, but I couldn't vote for anyone that gave her a new background, new eyes or a new hair style (some were very nice indeed...) because I interpreted the "snapshot look" as enhance what is there, not add to what is there.
Here are my votes:
1 - Nanls - loved it!! Great eyes... but wrong straps :-)
2 - MinnGal - hair a little to neat. Nice face color
3 - Bob Jones - nicely balanced
4 - Verywierd - nice work... slight left shoulder damage
5 - Artfolio - clipped head? what happened :-)
Honorable mentions for their "uniqueness":
InfiniteMonkey - very creative
lonK - love the look: very medieval...
Doug Colwell - loved the picture within a picture within a picture within...
Gmbun - the best hair
yikes-- so many to choose from!
I had a hard time voting this one....one would have great hair, but bad skin and so on, so I tried to base votes on achieving an overall natural look with skin and hair. Although I liked some of the new backgrounds and interesting manipulations, I tried to vote for people also who stayed with the general concept of the original shot. Thanks again aylaah.
1. Bella- very nice and natural overall, maybe a bit "soft"
2. Ziaphra- I like the pink, it brings out her coloring well and the rest of
the retouch is very smooth also
3. Nanis- very natural and good tones, hair may be a little too neat around
4. Verywierd- natural and subdued
5. Soleah- Nice job on the overall retouch and the makeup is applied well if
perhaps a bit "pinky" for me
honorable mentions go out to aceman (good brows, but left the straps messy), minngal (very good and would have made top five if you hadn't changed her eye color), likenew (good job on the shadow)
