Amber - you also did a great job emoving the mouth braces and enhancing the teeth. I have tried the Patch / Healing brush tool but found it difficult to get a natural looking result once the teeth are whitened- any Tips ?

Ro - I agree with you on the background and would have used the crop/perspective tool to bring the bookshelf into alignement with the verticals.

I find the orange colour cast a little off putting also. In this situation I normally take shots with and without flash. In this case the client picked the photograph taken without flash which is less sharp and has the orange cast.

A great range of different techniques here guys - thanks. The greatest difficulty seems to be getting a natural result on the face without looking like the photo has been manipulated.

I will work on this one over the weekend. Cheers

For the teeth, I sampled a spot from her teeth without the braces and painted with a small soft brush at a low opacity and just built up. But the color sample will not be a white if I remember right. And if you paint just white it won't look right, so that is why I sampled. If I remember right, I think Flora also took out her braces as well. She may have a better technique than that! But that's it!
