Rank skill level needed

We all know learning retouching and restoration can be hard. But how hard is it? Which of these items comes closest to matching the skill and knowledge needed for retouching and restoration?

I wasn't sure if you wanted replies to this thread or not. If you did, I'll just say that I've been trying to cook for 40 years, and the dogs still won't eat it! But - I think I could learn Japanese if I have enough years left, so that's my choice.

I chose police training, because only a few decide to do it. It is also a service that people want especially when they are in dire need. But most importantly although you can be trained to do the job, it’s the ones that have the natural talent that survive the longest! *grins*

skills needed

I think that cooking and R&R require a very similar temperament. Both require patience and a desire to experiment. One must follow certain rules and develop the required skills, but there is unlimited opportunity to experiment.

You didn't put in witchcraft as an option and with brain surgery you can kill the patient, suppose you could be killed by the Customer !!!!

I'll have to go with with cookery as my results rarely conform to the supposed recipe.

Well I went with gardening.

A little research, patience, and of course tender loving care and you will have a beauty.

Now if you just throw it in the ground or in this case up on the screen and just mess with it a minute or two chances are you'll have a sad looking thing staring back at you.

I just keep telling myself, patience is a virtue....and I'm feeling very virtuous..LOL.

Hair Styling! most definitely.

You can never stop learning new creative solutions to make something look good.

... and there is so much opinion involved.

Its the unnoticed attention to detail that differentiates good from bad.

fickle?
