With spring in the air in the Northeast USA, I couldn't resist adding a new background.

I hope I did justice to the subect. Thanks so much, aylaah, for contributing your photo. It was a pleasure to work on.

Also, I hope you have Japanese cherry trees in Australia --
'cause that's what you're in front of

Smile

Kept it nice and simple. Sharpened her features and smoothed the blemishes from the skin. Tidied up the hair a little too.

This is the first contest I've entered for a while - at first I thought it looked too much like hard work , but seeing everyone else's attempts made me want to give it a go. As others have said, it's hard to know where to stop in order to keep the natural snapshot feel. Hope I've managed to make the tread the line.

Thanks for providing the image, was fun to work on.
Adjusted the background color, adjusted the shoulders to give a bit more of a relaxed look, and well...just take a look

Say Cheese Aylaah!

I'll post a complete rundown in the discussion forum. Kept all the work to that of a purely cosmetic nature. So it's nothing that Aylaah wouldn't normally do for a night out on the town or a special occasion... possibly a wee bit flash for nipping down to the local superette tho

This is my first post. Hopefully I presented myself well.

Here are my steps:

Created a new layer and removed dark circles under eyes and blemishes with the healing brush. Dodge and cloned over the highlighted areas of skin
Cloned out Bra Straps. Duplicated the cloned layer and blurred it to create a smooth skin color, masked around sharp edges. Dropped opacity of layer down to about 40% and added noise to match original photo Whitened her eyes, added rust color to her eyes and filled in her eye lashes, and filled in/shaped her eye brows Straightened the part in her hair. Cloned out friz around edges of hair. cloned in hair to have a more uniformed appearance. Added in a more controlled friz. Fixed edges that had been inadvertantly blurred. Highlighted hair.

Thanks!

Newbie My attempt

This is my first post in this forum and my first attempt on retouching in public. I hope I didn't go too far with changes.

Here's hoping foreground tinkering doesn't bend the rules too much.
