Re: Your opinion please

Your additions and major alterations look fake, and amature.

As for the other stuff, it’s mostly ok. You just need more time to refine and master more techniques. Keep working at it, you can only improve with time, try new things and incorporate them into your work. Maybe even go back and re-do a really old photo that you already did. Then compare the old to the new retouch. Hopefully, you see a big difference.

"retouch&make up" to me was the best of the bunch.

Hope it helps,
-Keven

PS- if you want more people to critique, post a few (or one at a time) and people can give more direct advice.

Re: Your opinion please

Well I'd say that you're overdoing everything. Your D&B is a mess, if you're going to redo lighting, do it in the correct places. The colors you use for eyes look like the models had some sort of chemical accident and all the skin looks like plastic dolls.

I even noticed a nice Lens Flare in one pic!

To me this is retouching circa 1992.

Look at magazines, look at colors, look at the way lights falls on things. Get a lamp and move it around an object and look at what it does to the lighting and shadows. Then do that with 2 lamps. It's just all too much and no human eye looks like that!.

Glamour is no excuse for fake. More fake than reality, sure, but there are limits and you're going way over them.

Re: Your opinion please

Concentrate not on your retouching but on getting nicely shot images - what you are THINKING is retouching in the images you like, and seem to be trying to reproduce, is actually proper lighting.

Re: Your opinion please

Thanks all for coment! The eye coloring was fake just for fun,I can do them more natural.
Other stuff is not just a product of retouching,but I notice that if the photo is very high quality then what ever you do,it will look much better.I m aware that I overdo thing,but just cant stop my self,like I feel it¨s never anough and then I scrue up things

"I notice that if the photo is very high quality then what ever you do,it will look much better" - nope, sometimes it will look much worse.
