Black Beauty Retouch

I'm really happy about this edit.

The original was great, Charlotte K is great (both photog and person )

Let me know what you think, as always C&C are very welcome.

Re: Black Beauty

Wow, that's fantastic! The texture on the face looks amazing and I love what you did with the hair...the only thing that is throwing me off a bit is the texture on her back. The rest is perfect.

Re: Black Beauty

The yellow on her nose and lip don't sit quite right with me, but otherwise an excellent piece of work. I love the new lighting, much more dramatic.

Nice work keeping the skin texture, I hate it when that's overdone.

Re: Black Beauty

cant tell too much on the lowrez file, but the face and hair look pretty nice to me. looks like you stoped degrunging?

just something about that texture on the back that bothers me, my eye keeps going towards it, just doesn't look natural. but i see you were trying to keep the skin texture on her back, but maybe tone it down as focus fades off from her right shoulder towards her left.

did you sharpen the overall image maybe, is that what brought that back texture out so much?

*one other thing, i personally would get rid of that orange patch of skintone on her back and give her one continous skintone thorughout her back.
