Re: My daughters photos for improvement

Improving an image is very subjective.. some people feel that you should not touch a hair on their head while others want the plucked eyebrows and hairless face look... same with marks on the face some want them left alone others prefer removal... light skin, dark skin, olive skin all a matter of preference... plastic like skin or skin where you can see every pore... Glamour, High Key, Low Key... Plus lots of variables within all of the above... Sometimes all that is necessary for an improvement is a new background..

A list of the "improvements" and/or a picture with the offending things circled or marked for improvement would be very helpful in determining your desires..

Also, Please don't use external links as the only source for images, externally linked images should only be made available as a means to provide larger, higher resolution images or as a backup for attached images. By attaching the image to the post it will be viewable forever.

The following links may help!
Attaching Files or Images to Threads or Posts
Size and quality for Attached Images!

After you post your less than 100K version here, you could also post a link to the site that is hosting a larger version, as you have already done..

Re: My daughters photos for improvement

I agree with Palms the pictures are very nice already.. and I might add... a lovely girl!

On my versions I realize the face has changed.. she is now a pretty young lady instead of a pretty little girl.

My work flow consisted of trying a bunch of different things till I stumbled upon something I liked.. in other words I was just practicing different techniques and approaches till something good happened! (in my eyes anyway!)

Re: My daughters photos for improvement

Thank you very much all.

About the pics uploading and posting i didn't know about the size and so, i was just looking to post larger pics and for that i just posted a link and not attach the photos, but if that is not allowed or not preferred then i will try to decrease the file size and attach it.

OB, i like your edit/retouch very much, shows the ability of retouching any photo, and i hope i can learn lighting better way, so i don't need much workflow overall including lighting.

About the improvement preference and it is subjective i agree, but many many times when i post my photos just for show and not for comments or critiques there are many or some people talking much about my lighting or my retouching or posing or composition and so and so, for that reason i post my photos and see what is missing or what required improvement i should apply before i post? and yes, sometimes i like some kind of lighting or effects but others don't like it, should i care about that then?
