If you believe that what you do to your photos is good, you should try doing it faster. I can achieve the same effect in 3 minutes. 1 hour is too much for this kind of retouching, you must improve your workflow and speed up your turn arounds.

Re: Could you critic that!

I honestly don't know where to start to critic your retouchings because they have so many imperfections. The overall contrast is good, but you need to mask out the exagerated darken areas. Also keep in mind that adding contrast brings up many details that should be removed. The hand luminance on the right looks quite different from the coor and luminance of the whole body, so you need to fix that too. Also be careful with contrast, try not to blow out the highlights and not to daken too much the already dark tones.

Re: Could you critic that!

Here I tried to do what you talked about, the lights and the dark areas.
I've made a slight smooth on the skin, and I re-enforce the hair.

you can't see it well cause it's tiny
here it's bigger

tell me what you think and if it's not still good, could you show me please

Looks much, much better. By the way, why you don't buy a DVD tutprial? There are many nowadays. I think you would need the first Vitaly's DVD, which is for benginners. Don't know what about the Nick's DVD, but seems more for benginner-intermediate.

Definitely, you're improving, but try to be humble in the process, that's the best improvement every single human being can achieve. More plain, I mean that the title and the coment under the pic is quite big for the beauty standards, but I see you feel it as a very big improvement for your own personal path to perfection, which is very honorable. Perfection is infinite, it doesn't has any limits so it's unrecheable, at the end. We can approach to perfection, some peole more than others, but we never will be perfect. However, you see how the human being always seek for perfection, sometimes in the wine, sometimes in the food, in the cars or couture of clothes, even in ideologies and such. The human being always seek for perfection, for the fountain from where al the virtues come, but shamely, it doesn't get realized ofently that the PERFECTION doesn't belong to those things. in fact, it doesn't belongs to things. I felt like you a year ago, with my first decent retouchings, but it goes much, much beyond of that. Would be nice if you put one of your first retouchs and your new ones in order to tell the difference much more.

Re: Could you critic that!

yes sure I'll do that tomorrow, I will re-edit a photo, to see the difference. There are a lot of photos I like and I'm sure I can give them a new look, a new retouch!

I feel crazy

That's the attitude, man. Keep going and you will reach what you want. LEarn new techniques too, you should buy a DVD tutorial such as Natalia Taffarel (advanced), Vitaly's DVD (benginner) or the one from Nick (intermediate, as far as I read). That will help you a lot too
