"Plain Jane" retouch mini-challenge

I took this photo of my friend who is a singer. She's pretty, but very plain.

I'm posting the original photo straight from the camera for all to have fun with. Just for fun....I'd love to see some dramatic retouches of her...I've already done a simple one as you can see below.


HIGH REZ PHOTO - have fun!

Gamut replacement, cloning, healing brush, and byro Degrunging to name a few. Sorry for the low quality due to compression.

Softened the skin a little, evened the skin tone, warmed the tone of the picture overall with a photo filter, cropped, repaired damage to windows, levels adjustment to create more contrast

Re: "Plain Jane" retouch mini-challenge

I think your friend is very pretty, I wouldnt say she was plain, but I think she needs more practice in front of the camera to get more relaxed and natural, she looks a little bit like she's saying in her head 'please get this over with, I dont want my picture taken'

Great work everyone!

NancyJ, that's pretty much what I was imagining as far as dramatic goes. What was your WF?
