Re: Shortened neck body retouching plz critique

I saw this photo sometime age and never noticed the long neck. I think you shortened it a little too much. Now her neck looks too thick for her body proportions. I shortened it a little less and thinned her neck. Als added a little pop by boosting the highlights and shadows. I think yours also has a slight yellow cast.

haha whoops! I guess I should have tried that one first! Dang, she really did have a long neck! I agree with duwayne, it might have been shortened a bit much. If you shorten it that amount, thin it out a bit to even things out proportionally.

I guess I'm not convinced her neck needed shortening, and you've turned her skin green.

Re: Shortened neck body retouching plz critique

I just did a skin correction using SkinTune (to eliminate the effects of my (reasonably well-calibrated) monitor and my (not as good as it used to be, probably, but still better than average) color perception).

The point I sampled was R170 G144 B95 before correction, R171 G127 B95 after. The only significant change was in the green channel.
