One of the biggest problems here is that there is a big lack of even knowing what good retouching is. The site posted is atrocious. Not a matter of overdoing it, it's doing it badly.

Everyday I make 'photo illustrations' for ad campaigns. the retouching is extreme, but the retouching itself has been done well. Realism in the sense of anatomy, correct light, color, etc. has been maintained. The sense of dis-belief is unharmed.
Ant, could you point me in the right direction to showcase some good, decent body/face retouching. I viewed the above website, and whilst the manipulations were in some cases severe and nothing short of crude distortions - it is exactly this kind of retouching that is the norm in the beauty magazine world. Not a world that I inhabit, but one I imagine takes up a large chunk of the retouching work that is offered? Would I be wrong in thinking that?

Ant, would really like to compare and contrast this website with any other that you recommend to be of a more subtle and naturalistic (for want of a better phrase).

For those of us who are looking to learn new skills and dabble in the world of retouching - it would be invaluable to learn good habits rather than pick up bad ones just because we presume the industry expects this kind of end result.

I looked at the site and although we might not like the work,I am assuming the clients are satisfied.Which in the end is what its about.I really do not know all that much about high end retouching,it is just my opinion

considering I've yet to see someone that good on here yet I'd say it's pretty nice work.
