Re: Sep 07 Contest Votes

This was a great contest. Almost a third of the entries were from brand new RetouchPRO members. Let me extend my welcome to them and hope they'll all become regular contributing members of our family.

With so many creative, imaginative entries, voting was a real chore. I started by rating each entry on a scale from 1 to 10. I leaned in favor of those who went with my basic interpretation of the contest criteria: a realistic, embellished, Hollywood styled beauty retouch of a gorgeous young woman. I allowed leeway on "looks like a photograph", since we are talking the movie business here! I ended up with over a dozen 10s! It just goes to show how member skills are continually improving. Picking my favorite 5 of those was very difficult.

1. emilylt87 -- lovely soft complexion, cool hair and hypnotic eye makeup
2. Shalford -- very inventive vision; definitely "icy"
3. MatthewMarshall -- innovative sleepy eye manipulation, frosty coiffure and attire
4. dcolwell -- clean, subtle retouch and originative wintry embellishment
5. splata -- symmetry is a great idea: beauty = symmetrical. Delicate crystal lace apparel.

And props to a few more that I really liked for one reason or another: CathyH, grafx, lorraine, mikkimicole, nancyj, ratz, solitear and wojtek.

3, MattewMarshall - Nice overall look, I could see this one on a film poster
4, dcolwell - Very photographic and clean retouching
5, K_Gimini_M - Soft over all look

Re: Sep 07 Contest Votes

As everyone has said..... very hard..... but here goes...

1. LonK - Great job...using drop shadows really makes the jewelry real.... color was so good, too, because she still had faint life in her cheeks and the warm ring around her pupils..
2. Grafx - Really great lashes and eye makeup.
3. Matthew Marshall - Great frosty hair and loved the lips.
4. Doug Colwell - Overall great plus very 'real' looking.
5. Nanls - Really liked the hair thingy...

Also liked:
Palms - great delicate, frosty hair.
Emily - she looked so pretty... especially her eyes.
Cassidy - liked the look of yours... would have loved it if the jewelry had a drop shadow to make it sit on the skin...

Such a fun contest!
