Sometimes I wish I could show people what I see
I know that feeling, I use a Dell M60 50% of the time and I find things are sharp, bright and vivid. Sometimes I have done some very very subtle details and then found they don't really show up on othe screens. So knowing how other see things is often a thought going through my head. Iused to have a CRT at work but the new lease machines are all CRT and I was not able to keep my CRT I found they would give a more rounded view of what the general audience would see.

My try.

Cleaned up spots etc with healing brush.
Smoothed skin with gaussian blur and median filter on separate layers, black mask and painted in as required.
Adjusted saturation and contrast.

Tried to get and enhance what you were going for with the coloured lights, hopefully I achieved that. Method very similar to the other too. If I was doing this properly I'd have removed the stray hairs over her ear too.

Great!!

Robin,

welcome to RP!!

...not my cup of tea either ... just wanted to try ...

I strongly brightened the picture and minimized the colours just to see what I was doing ... the procedure will probably work on the original as well ... even if I think that for the original the smoothing should be much stronger to simply see any improvement!

* Spot Healing Brush +

* A simplified version of Rô's Tutorial.

This may not be at all what the photographer had in mind. But, I thought the composition in the oringinals were great. I tried to enhance the photographers use of the "S" curves he had throughout the images and run with that. About 99% of this was done with a paint brush, nothing fancy really.

Anyway, good job on the photography.

Hi to everyone! Haven't been here for a long time.
I liked these photos and did 3 of them.
Tried to be consistent to some point on the skin tone.
Here they are ...!

i did a version of the girl with the machines, i over did the smoothing purposely, i just liked the way it looked.

nancy J did some really nice hue adjustment to the picture she did, i basically did the same thing. i think yellow photo filter i used.

If you like I'll tell you how I did it.

ok

It was hard but not long

1- Look at the chanels and kept the one with more detail (RED), deleted the other 2 (now the image is B&W) so change the mode to grayscale and then again to RGB. with the image in B&W I patched the bad skin with good skin in 50% (ctrl+shift+F) all over the face.

2- Colorized the image (one layer for the skin, one for the lips, one for the teeth,etc) trying to mantain the colors in the original (well the colors that were left and guessing the other). merge the layers and play with the levels. But I didn't pay to much atention 'cause I knew that the next step would fix the details.

3- Reopened the original image, copy it all and pasted it in a new layer of the retouched file blended soft light and turned down the opasity 40%...50%)

4- One again I merg the layers and now the image had more sense. Again played with the levels, move the curves a little and adjusted the tone and saturation of the diferent colors.

Finally, some highlights in the mouth, the earing. Some shadows in the nose. Some unsharp mask to the eyes and eyeshadow.

English is not my native lenguaje so I do what I can. Hope this helps you understand my image.
