Re: First Attempt at Glamour Retouching-Critiques & Suggestions Please?

Vanessa... nice work. :-)

The frame is a free action from ePaperPress. To lighten the eyes I selected them out on a separate layer and used levels.

I agree about the background. I had, at first, cloned it out. Then cropped it out... which I prefer... since it adds nothing. The cropping focuses the viewers attention into the subject. Just my opinion. Some folks like tight crops and other don't.

Keep up the good work!

Cheers,
Sherry

You are totally right about the horizion line... I masked it out and put some clouds in using a gradient layer to adjust the brightness of the cloud photo I used. What do you think? Does this look natural enough? Or should I do a different type of background photo?

I still have to do the nose yet, but maybe tomorrow.

The best source I found is Lynda’s “Photoshop CS3 One-on-One Beyond the Basics”.
There are 9 video chapters about liquify.
