Definitely a great improvment!!!

Skin colouring is surely one of the most delicate and difficult tasks in retouching!!!

Well the second attempt was better. However he still looked a tad pale. I downloaded your picture and increased the saturation by +30. Perhaps that is an improvement.

Your original picture is on the right. The increase sat one on the left.

keepemcomin, it still looks undersaturated. I'm wondering if your monitor is calibrated? Do the other postings look "over" saturated to you?

Vikki, interesting thought. Some of them do look oversaturated. When I go that far it looks orange to me.

I'll check into that...thanks for pointing it out.
