I did a very light dodge on her lips. Especially the lower one that is reflecting more light.
oke I know wat you mean! but i think that that is just To much? but youre right about it, only i think that is to Glossy, ore how you say that? it just ehm? bleach out? but i'm gonna try it out! and we will see whats comming!

Re: What do you Think about this retouched Portrait?

Ruud thanks for those links

just an observation on my part is that on the final final version the lips are strange in that the lower lip pretrudes a lot more than the upper lip due to the darkening of the top and lightening of the bottom lip thus making the bottom lip appear closer to the viewer -

i prefere the lips on the previous version -

HOw are you getting the colour in this image ??

thanks
