Re: "Plain Jane" retouch mini-challenge

Hi everyone!

Usually I'm a lurker, but I saw this great picture, and thought I'd give it a try! I actually have 3 versions, hope that's ok.

Well, don't lurk anymore! I like your third one. I like the makeup that you have applied. I also like that you tried to darken the background. That background really doesn't add anything to the picture.

Mellyrose, I like your original one too. I like that you have added depth of focus by blurring the background. Only one thing....I would have cropped it the other way so that the open space was in front of her.

I cropped that background out altogether so that I could get a larger focus on the main subject for my 100k and also because there is nothing in it that is particularly interesting. I cleaned up some of the stray hair on her shirt, cloned out that clip in front of the right collar. I liked the gap between her two front teeth so I left that but I decreased the size of her left nostril which looked out of proportion to the right one (I guess that was the camera angle). It is not a very flattering shot of her nose to be honest and I am sure she has a perfect nose but it is just that the camera is looking up at her and it has gotten a bit distorted. I also changed the catchlights in her eyes and brightened them up a bit.

Hi there,

I did something different, hope you like it (in fact, corrected several details, as mouth, lips, teeth, and makeup, amongst others).
