Re: Critique again please guys!

It's way better than the other one ! Congrats
Just some tips : ( contructive )

-Your skin texture looks great on most part but there's some parts that became a bit blurry , when it happens add texture.
-Like in the other picture, I think the white of the eye is WAY too white. It depends on taste but right now retouching is very natural.
-The skin tone is very orange-y , even if it's like that on the original I would tone that a bit.
-Fill eyebrows and make them clean for a beauty shot ( and sharp it too it's very blurry)

Re: Critique again please guys!

hey, thanks for your time. tbh, whites in the eye and orangey skin is my monitor fault, not calibrated at all, but doing some tets prior to finishing work (changing screen profiles). eye brows were sharpened, unfortunately did not get the detail i wanted. you re absolutely right about the textures. will take more care next time.

It`s a lot better then the last one, especially the nose . Imho You should try to brighten the image a little bit, and try to neutralize the red color using curves. BTW great work on the skin texture, what is it ? dodge&burn technique ? The eyes are way too flat - maybe from that white texture. greetings from Poland P.

hey,

as mentioned, my screen is not calibrated, so having a bit of issues with brithness and color tones, i will try to print it on a3 to see the colours. it was inverted high pass for blemishes and skin texture, then d&b. cheers

Re: Critique again please guys!

The skin is very good aside from the color and I think that the retouching looks a lot better than your last one.

The front of the neck looks manipulated though because the edge separating the front of the neck from the background is too hard and should have a softer edge like the rest of the image. The sharp edge focuses too much attention on the neck where as the focus of the camera was probably on the face. The line of the front of the neck also seems too vertical and too parallel to the back of the neck which makes the head neck relationship seem awkward and unnatural. I realize though that you were probably more interested in the skin in this retouch and you did a good job on that.

Hey,

I had a look at the image, I changed tone of the skin for more natural (it looked like gold originally), and darkened whites in the eye. Have a look at this one:

Thanks Caravaggio for your feedback, to be honest I strugled big time with the neck, and I had many considerations when dealing with this part of the imae.

Although I didn't like it at a first glance, the more I look at it the more intriguing it gets. Nice!
