Nice, clean photos, Jelena. Nice model! But I'm not particularly fond of the lip-biting photo. And some perpendiculars could be straightened.

I agree. Nice, clean photos. Good lighting. Professional looking. I particularly like the last one. Just a few of suggestions as far as the retouching goes: there is a red mark on the heel of the hand that needs to be removed. I would soften or remove those tendons in her arm. There is a orange discolouration on the inside bend of the elbow that should also be blended in with the surrounding colour. Her left upper cheek is a bit patchy and could do with some D&B. Finally, just very slightly accentuating the highlights and shadows will make it pop just that little bit more. The changes I have made are very subtle and the best way to view them would be to place the retouched version over the original in Photoshop and switch the layer on and off.

Sincerely Syd

A nice exercise in retouching BUT a number of them look over retouched to the point of looking unreal, expecially the closeups.

Unless it's for highfashion/beauty, then retouching should follow the same concept as makeup. It's there, but it's invisible. Nobody wants to look like a mannequin.
