Who wants to PS some hotties? ;)

I've been playing around with photoshop a lot lately and still kinda getting the hang of things. I've messed around a lot with the below photos, but can't seem to get them just right. I'm curious as to what you guys might do with them. Pick your favorite one and go nuts!

Nicole Pics
Jessica Pics

Please let me know what you did so I can learn from this. You guys rock!

Well, I'm not certain if I could duplicate this, so I can't tell you the steps yet. But here's one.

I was thinking more along the lines of just color correction and glamourizing them, but that does look super cool! I really like that. I'm going to mess around now and see if i can figure that one out.

It's a little hard to do much straight glamourizing (which I really don't have any experiencing with) because the image is pretty small and low quality jpg. But I'm taking advantage and practicing. I call this Somewhere Under My Rainbow. Applied some soft portrait technique, changed the distracting blue sky, and added the rainbow.

I just softened her face a bit, some color correction and some digital makeup, also blurred the background to keep focus on the girl.

KenB,
I'd love to know how you got her face just right. That's the look I'm going for but haven't been able to get yet. I'm not a fan of the eye makeup, but everything else is perfect. Mind going into a little more detail? Did you just soften the face or add makeup there too?

Bill,
I gotta know how you did that rainbow!

This was fun!

I don't know if I got the look you were going for, but...

Loosely ordered steps included: heavy blur with the blurring tool on her face, gaussian blur on background painted in with layer mask, several adjustment layers including gradient overlay, digital makeup with new layers set to overlay.

I softened her face using the gassian blur filter on a duplicated layer with a layer mask, which let me "paint" on the softness where I wanted it. I agree I overdid the eye makeup. I also did add a little color to her cheeks, also on a seperate layer.
