Re: First Post - Retouch Critique

Liam, welcome to RetouchPRO

Your link took me to the sign-up page... dun wunna!! so didn't see your effort!

Please don't use external links as the only source for images, externally linked images should only be made available as a backup for attached images. Sometimes links to outside sites can get broken...External links change, some sites purge old accounts or have time limits for storage, which makes an otherwise useful thread here pretty useless. By attaching the image to the post it will be viewable forever.

The following links may help!

Attaching Files or Images to Threads or Posts
Size and quality for Attached Images!

After you post your less than 100K version here, you could also post a link to the site that is hosting a larger version Use one of your own or any of these other host options:
ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) or pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) or photobucket.com (1 Meg max free,... 5 Meg PRO)-- .Flickr.com (5Meg max free.. BUT they resize to 1024 long side if you don't pay)

Hello Liam,

Great model and good job editing it. I really like what you have done.

Well making the background B&W was a good choice for starters, to add to it you could add some vignette.

If you want to get real crazy you could possibly do a lens baby effect on everything or just the background. Go here to see a video.

Another thing, I don’t know if you cropped this but the picture seems unbalanced to me. It seems a bit Model right heavy making it seem off center.

Good luck,
-Keven

I have this image on my computer, waiting to be edited too (thanks deviant art!). I like what you did with the image...All in all, very good work. One little thing is that her forehead MIGHT be a bit bright (imho). Keep it up!
