Retouch a Flirty Photo

Here's a photo I'm retouching...looking for some suggestions on getting the flash glare out of the picture and touching up the colors. Thanks!

Re: Retouch a Flirty Photo

This is my try on the project. Mostly cloning and a color adjustment.

I've used a softlight layer to remove light form face of the boy painted a softbrush at 8% op. on it with black, and same brush i've used on the girl's face with white.

Re: Retouch a Flirty Photo

quick fix......went into Lab for color boost, lighten things up....then just did some sloppy D&B on the existing highlight and shadow areas. i like the orange light in the background the way it bleed onto the girl and the wall....too bad it's right off of the guys head/face.

Looks awesome except I think the color of the dress is a little too pink

I love the satin look that you gave the picture

The colors are very nice and bright...if you smooth the boy's right cheek and bring it in a little I think it would look great!

Re: Retouch a Flirty Photo

I thought a high contrast look would suit this picture. You lose some detail but I think it looks pretty decent. Try increasing the saturation if you like that colorful look. Again, this was a pretty quick job, more details could be salvaged if you take time using masks.

Deezy - Love seeing it with the high contrast
Here's my take on it with the Dragonizer Action.

Re: Retouch a Flirty Photo

To be honest, I cannot really go into step-by-step. I was playing while at lunch

I adjusted the levels, played with shadow/highlight, then I cloned and cloned and cloned (I even found a donor ear). From there I did some selective color tweaking and then burned and dodged.
