Would like opinions or critiques

Not sure what I was going for, but here is the original and two retouches.

Let me know what you think.

Hi keiser,

Contrasty, desaturated and high radius sharpened as to cause halos. The end result is grunge-like.

Perhaps if you use the same technique on a photo that is more solemn placed in a location other than the beach it would come off better.

It's a very pretty picture of a happy little girl that now doesn't look very pretty. I would go the opposite direction with this photo and lighten it up using beachy colors.

Regards

I agree with Bill that this technique doesn't seem suited to the image. The girl has lovely soft blond hair, that following the filters looks dirty and greasy. Overall I like the original image a lot, and the filters have not improved it.

I agree about it not suiting this picture. Used it because I like the lighting. Have to see if I can find a more appropriate picture to try it on.

Thanks for the input.
