Re: Feb/Mar 2012 Contest Votes

Here are my votes:

1st> ElectricNeon: best creative retouching. The style meets the brief and the model as well.

2nd> Milex79: Best skin retouch, simple but neat.
3rd> Imagocentric: fresh, radiant, young!
4th> Cupcake: Nice texture just too heavy on the make-up (because you're too young!)
5th> Captain obvious: good idea for the black and white and grainy look, nice shirt...

Too hard to choose (it took me nearly 1 hour) !!!

Re: Feb/Mar 2012 Contest Votes

I chose my winners with a conscious view toward fashion-izing the face.

1. CaptObvious - most effective transformation from original image to a fashion cover and while not perfect, grabs me with a Kate Middleton feel.

2. electricneon - skin is retouched nicely, adding a slight blush of freckles - overall appearance with texture blend adds a mist of haze while face is sharply focused.

3. Cupcake - clear skin, enhanced eyes, great makeup

4. Lonk - most transformed from original to fashion/beauty icon reminescent of the Breck girl ads.

5. Oski - super job of beautifying the original shot.

Re: Feb/Mar 2012 Contest Votes

I chose the order of those I picked by the impact the image had on initial viewing. Then I moved from there to skin/makeup tones, hair, etc. Needless to say, the voting was difficult, especially among the top three I picked.

1. Mikex - Very well done. I liked the close crop. It really emphasized her face and allowed you to minimize the other problems with the picture.

2. Jansandahl - Very well done. I like what was done with the lighting of the face and the nice, even work on the hair.

3. CathyH - Sweet girl next door. Reminded me of the Breck commercial ads.

4. Cupcake - Good work. The eyes were a little soft for my taste.

5. TopiToo - Nice work on the face. Too bad about forgetting the flyaways on the hair.

Honorable mentions:

Tyche - Good concept. However, the overall blur/sharpness factor was distracting and inconsistent.

Electricneon - I like the concept and the dreamy quality.

Kudos to those who have entered this contest. I'm pleased to see so much participation and enthusiasm. My young friend would be pretty pleased with the overall results.
