York, Welcome to RTP. You did a very nice job. It would be interesting to see the original shot.

Re: lady in red

I'm surprised with all of the work you did, you didn't touch the line in the concrete that runs between her legs...looks great otherwise, nice colors. I like how you made her outfit satin.

Re: lady in red

I like the pose, dress, the "attitude look", hair, color contrast and the glow/satin effect (in your 'after' pic; looks like LucisArt. Is it?)

Location concept is OK too, but even in your retouch (for my taste) there is still too much distraction in the background -- buildings, light poles, etc. -- that draw attention from the subject.

Notice that only one breast is apparent in your interpretation (nicely done. Subtle and feminine), but where's the other one? I tried to hack one in -- not a good job, but see what I mean? [I asked my wife; she too noticed the mismatch without me pointing it out.]

Overall a lot of good things; only minor suggestions.

Lucis: Lucis is only in the last part of the proces, just minor influence. I used to paint with light a few hours, and then some minor lucis. When you only use Lucis, you have very few controle and A LOT of noise.

distraction: Yeah, I've been told the same, but that's alright for me.

breast: Good point, I didn't notice that, the more I look at it, the more obvious it becomes... but this one is natural ;-)

thanks

York
