nice job!

i would say the next thing is a simple crop. you've a lot of space around the main focus of the picture, the woman. this makes her seem less significant, smaller. she's the main picture; bring her forward.

On my calibated mac monitor the face and hands appear un-naturally light. It could just be the windows/mac thing in save for web, or the result of too much gamma—the bench also looks artifically light. If it looks ok on your monitor it's fine...skip

Hi Realaqu,

Nice job with the colour flare removal.

Just a note on Craig's idea to crop. Be careful not to crop too tight if the picture quality is not there. By cropping you are in effect enlarging your image, and this will also emphasise any faults in the image.

Gary.

Thanks for the tips, It looks better after cropping.
I checked the picture on my Mac, it does look different.

This was the SFW thing I was talking about. Which ever platform you use it will always be wrong for someone

Hi,

realaqu,

Great job on the leaks ...
In my opinion, the image laks a bit of 'life' .... the girls face is a bit pale and faded making the background vegetation seem overpowering ...

I just added a bit of consistency, sharpness and color to the girl's face ans used the Lens blur on the background following this great Tutorial to make the girl 'stand out' more.

Hi skipc,

Welcome to RP!

Yep, you are absolutely right about Windows and Mac Gamma difference!!

From PS Help file: The gamma value of a computer monitor affects how light or dark an image looks in a web browser. Because Windows systems use a gamma of 2.2, images look darker on Windows than on Mac OS systems, which are normally set to a gamma of 1.8. You can preview how your images will look on systems with different gamma values and make gamma adjustments to the image to compensate. Activating a preview option does not affect final image output.

Choose one of the following options by using the Save For Web dialog box Preview pop‑up menu (Photoshop) or by choosing an option from the View > Preview menu (ImageReady).

Uncompensated Color Makes no adjustments to image gamma. Uncompensated Color is the default setting.

Standard Windows Color Displays an adjustment based on the default Windows gamma.

Standard Macintosh Color Displays an adjustment based on the default Macintosh gamma.

Use Document Color Profile or Use Embedded Color Profile Adjusts the gamma to match any attached document color profile in a color-managed document.

Hi, Flora,

Great job as usual and thanks for the tutorial, it might be my monitor's problem, your picture looks a little greenish.

According to everyone's suggestion, I made some changes on this picture.
