What do you think ?

Hi everyone,

This is my first post here so I'll talk a little about me first.
I'm a french guy who's actually interested about high end retouching so I tried some techniques that I saw on the web or DVD.

Here's my first attempt with many hours of works (I don't know the average time for high end retouching a photo like that, it could be good for me to know that).

So here I go, tell me what's wrong, I'm sure there's a lot of wrong things lol, I begin but I want to learn

Thanks to all of you.

Frankie

Re: What do you think ?

Yes I can,

I start with portraiture plugin to get ride of the big problems.
Then I split frequency.
Patch tool on high layer.
Then dodge and burn on pixel level.
Then dodge and burn for shadow and light (make volume), more 3D look.
Then sharpening the eyes and eyebrows.

I think this a good summary of what I did ^^

I think the skin looks so great that the hair almost looks like it's not the same picture. Maybe a little bit more d&b on the hair? I must admit do, I'm not close to that good on retouching skin, well done!

Edit:
I'd love to see you make a youtube clip on how you did this.

Re: What do you think ?

On the subject of grading (another thread), the face is a little too red, and the neck and arms are too yellow relatively. You might also want to reintroduce some natural flaw on birthmark in the skin if she had any. It's a little too "Model Mayhem" in the skin way.
