Welcome to RetouchPRO nyxxie , Cross and neeceeblack ! I like Cross's version with less blur but that ear needs to be much closer to the same color as the rest of the shaded side of her face. Nice artsy take on this photo with your other adjustments nyxxie. Good photo to work on did you take it.

Re: I like to be critiqued. lol.

This is my second pass, inspired be a number of the other posts. My base was my first pass shown in a previoous post.

- Loaded base and duplicated twice on separate layers (label one as Highlights and the other as Shadows)
- on the channels pallet, selected red channel and turned it into a selection (Cntl-Click)
- return to RGB channel and back to Layers pallet
- did Select=> Feather R=20 then Select=>Save Selection (alpha1)

- Selection should still be active (if not, do Select=>Load Selection alpha1)
- select Highlights layer and Layer=>Add Layer Mask=>Reveal Selection

- select Shadows layer then Select=>Load Selection=>alpha1
- Select=>Inverse and Layer=>Add Layer Mask=>Reveal Selection

Now you can select the Highlights and Shadows layer and use Image=>Adjustments=>Levels to achieve different degrees of this effect.

Gorgeous work, everyone.

I do like the blur, it gives sort of a glowing effect.

One question though, why do you burn the background out, rather than just cutting it out and replacing it?

Re: I like to be critiqued. lol.

hey guys. i thought i would have a go. im also new at this so any feedback would be appreciated. i wasnt sure if you were going for that 'glowing' look, but i did it anyway. i also was too lazy to remove the strap hehe.

the first picture is with the glow, and the second is a plain and natural one without the glow.
