Here are the two finished versions. Played with his pants - we talked about trying to make them tan, but it did not really work out, so I tried black instead. Dunno yet which she is going to like best. I liked both versions, but really thought the blue pants was prettier - lol. Anyways, here they are.

Hi Dawn, Glad I could be of help, really nice job you've done. I think I prefer the dark trousers, they don't draw your eye from the central focus of the picture as much as the blue ones do. But the end user is always the final judge. She should be pleased with both.

Super job Dawn! Like Gary, I'd go with the darker pants, but it's what she wants that really counts.

By the way, I checked your profile. Are you anywhere near Tupelo? We have friends there.

Nice job removing the clutter from his jeans, but for my taste you have smoothed everything a little too much, for example there is no texture to the jeans now. Maybe you could try applying the smoothing to a new layer and erasing parts of it to make the detail come back through.

It just looks a little odd to me, but I like everything else and think you chose a nice backdrop.

Love the picture and the idea, but i have to agree the man looks too pretty...not manly...his skin looks too perfectly like a babys

Could you reduce the smoothing on the guy and make him have more of a manly complexion, this i have to say is probably one of the hardest things to do, we see lots of challenges on womens faces but none on mens...
