Hmm, the baby's breath above the ear could be debatable, however yes, the armpit needs at least reducing, but what I saw as one of the majors was what looked like a makeup line aside the breast. I personally think the baby's breath would be best removed, but it does provide contrast

I'm not sure this is what Daniel is looking for, but I made a layer mask to bring back the original color of the dress, which is probably what the ad is for.

oops, everybody (except adong, maybe) forgot the eyes.

In the example that danielalbe posted the eyes have retained their colour, in fact seem a little over-saturated.

For those who are having some trouble describing their steps in english, a good idea would be to take a snapshot of the layer palette (assuming that you are using layers) and post that (.gif is a good option).

Good call Ro,

One of the many advantages of lossless editing with layers, just maked out the adjustment layers over the eyes.

Michael, I'm a big fan of yours. Like your style. I generally try to duplicate what you have done. I've picked up some good techniques thanks to you.

On this image, I follow pretty much up to the Gradient Map layer. Not having used them much before I don't get how you get the gradient from deep orange to amber to white. Any help?

I noticed the jarring collar bone and no one seems to have tackled that. What I did if interested is:

1. On duplicate layer do all healing which is is to eliminate things, zits and so on.
2. When eliminating is done, make a snap shot.
3. On same layer tackle the items I want reduced, collar bone and arm pit. Heal them pretty much away. Large brush and carefull with the blending.
4. Make another snapshot.
5. Set the first snapshot as the active art history. With low opacity, large soft brush with sweeping strokes bring back some of the reduced area to taste.
6. If you go to far bringing back, set second snapshot as active art history and paint with Art History brush to go the other way.

I attached my try. I can't seem to get the same tones as you guys.

I don't know, but I think the original example (http://www.lasposa.info/entrada_index.asp?idioma=1) of the "look" are over retouched...

Nanis, I fully agree with you....BUT (my 2 centavos from Brazil)..I would call this line of work more "stylised" than actual Glamour.

In Glamour we are trying to fabricate a super-perfect photographic image of a person.

If we consider that the basic technique we are looking at here involves a distortion of skin tone (golden), as well as a distorted colour balance (strong saturation in the eyes) then the photographic limitation doesn't seem to apply - so let's go all the way and make porcelain skin!!

Why not?
