Re: Can some one give me some Critique on my work?

Wow, you've given us some variety! These are very small, so I'll just be able to tell you the most obvious.

Car: beautiful! Very professional and clean. (except for desaturating that grass a little to the right of the car, or even slightly lens blurring the houses in the back to keep the focus on the car, but I'm nitpicky that way.)

Hands on face girl: Very good! Slightly too much contrast, because parts of her skin are pure white and the darkest values are pure black. You don't usually want this.

Long hair girl: Looks like there's lots of 100% black in that picture, that's bad - especially if you were ever considering printing this. It would be a muddy mess. Even for screen, don't use 100% black. It erased the detail in that area. You also blew out the highlights again. In this case, the original is superior in my opinion.

Great job on the restoration! Very nice. I'm curious, is it a family member?

Pretty nice car paint job is awesome but the potraits are a bit dark Im assuming you used overlay or levels with blurring effect? Uve kind of lost detail in the shadows(like hair). The face smoothing is good but you can also add pores back into the skin to give a more realistic look.....The tutorial is called Soft Dior look (on this site).

Face retouching: Don't BLUR, keep an eye on detail (Shadows and highlights).
