Beauty retouch

Hello everybody,

I would like to know what do you think about this piece... any constructive criticism is welcome (what is bad, to do... and so...)

Goal was to clean it, keep it real as much as possible

Original/before 800x1200px

Retouched/after 800x1200px

Thanks

Balage

Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, offer help, have fun!

Very nice! I like the lashes you did to fill the gap and the close to invisible repairs you have accomplished!

A very small pet peeve of mine is when fixing stray hairs.... take the time while there, to fix the cross hairs where they came from.

Maybe lighten the highlights in the eye and the Iris just a bit and lighten a tad or at least get rid of the color cast in the white of the eye

the crease on the bottom lip seems to draw the eye now and might be blended in some

A little bit brighter highlights on the eye and lips would give some instant focal points.. at present the focus seems to go to the bridge of the nose

But Over all Very nice work!!

Posting a link in the thread to a site that is hosting larger images is great and helpful in making an informed evaluation but please remember to also attach an under 100K version in the thread so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links.

How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads?(Click here)

If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the save for web function in Photoshop as described here:

Re: Beauty retouch

I agree with the points above..great job on the lashes and skin. also agree with the stray hair issue...FOLLOW THROUGH all the way to the end of them. I would like to see a little more color overall..especially in the hair and lips. The lips look good but maybe just a tad dry, perhaps see if you can add some "moisture".

Re: Beauty retouch

It's an overall ok retouch..i would set the light different on the original picture, both for the lights itself (seems abit dark), but also for contrast/depth..the original is abit flat, witsh make your retouch abit more difficult..
I would used d&b on the hair, for a more "life"..
I would also crop it abit different, but that's just what i would have done.

...but overall an ok retouch

Re: Beauty retouch

Hi Balage!
It's very good job you done here with retouching, but if I will publish that in a magazine (let's imagine that) you need to go do some more work. I cross some of the problematic area I believe need more attention (see attachments). As well as more whitening the eye (the white part of corse) more sharpen to the eye as well, more color to the lips (if non intended otherwise) and a bit "shaping" the face and body ( dodge and burn some of the part) as you (or photographer) miss on lightning a bit ( the light I agree with the Steve is a bit dull).

Regards
