Thumbs down

I think the reworked version is beautiful. I love the warmth of the photo, and you really made the model, who was already a pretty girl look really beautiful. Good job!

Smile What about this?

I just made her a little less red

And croped it

Tell me if you like it. I didn't do any retouching, just adjusted what I've said before

In my opinion the skin is too smooth, the left eye is too light and the arm is too thin. It's not that bad but the next retouching should be lighter

Sorry it took so long to get back here.
I really do like what you've done G-mom, the crop works really well. I added a bit of a tilt to straighten her up some when I reworked her
Again

lol ... .

And Thanks Bella, that was a pretty strong compliment. I appreciate it.

So yeah ... I reworked it one last time, tying out Julien's thoughts ~ which I really have to agree with. Thanks Julien, they where all thing I thought I was seeing but it helps to hear it from someone else. The skin was a hard pull because of the size of the original image. Real low dpi, 72!, and I have a hard time not overworking the skin texture trying to lose the artifacts. Makes me kinda crazy too

It's online here ...

I'm trying to build my portfolio back up and get it online and it's kinda slow going ... but at least I'm done with this one ~ stick a fork in it - It is done!

I’d love some thoughts on the others if anyone’s got a minute.

I think it is a little over retouched and looks a little false.

Compositionally I'd crop down farther on her head (at the top). This picture is about the eye contact and the top of the head seems distracting and sort of stange because her chin is so low.
