Re: Loosing brilliance while retouching ?

Know I have played with this image before, but cannot find a "post" so tonight I played a little, did a severe gaussian blur, set it to overlay mode, implemented a mask and painted out the background. Whilst it enhances the colour again, you can desaturate further keeping the contrast. Maybe moving more into the high-key area

Re: Loosing brilliance while retouching ?

Your Photocommunity posts have excellent lighting and IMHO have been PPed starting with a contrast mask or two. I started with your retouch, adjusted with levels and curves layers and then applied two contrast masks, concentrating on the detail of the skin. After a saturation adjustment, some high pass and USM sharpening produced the following result.

Is this where you are going?

Re: Loosing brilliance while retouching ?

I am a photographer. The example that was attached is definetely soft. The picture is about 800pix wide and at that size they all should look extremely sharp. Check your camera for back/front focus. What lenses do you use?Hopefully not a kit lens...

Anyways,here's my 2 minutes retouching shot at your model

Hi Bullys1974
I took your retouch, added some highpass sharpening and some blend mode changes.
