Nice skin work. See if you can coax a little detail out of the shadows.

Wanted to bring a little more contrast to this one. Beautiful subject even before any cleanup.

You will see a much wider range of tones with black skin than with caucasian skin. But you won't see red/orange on either. Try a curve like this (red channel) and see if you don't find the result a bit more realistic.

Ok, I pulled the reds back a bit. This look a bit more natural?


Curious about the curve setting you suggested...looks like you have two anchors up top, and adjusted the midtones up slightly. If I do that the image becomes more red.

Check the gradient at the bottom. I have white on the left, black on the right. Clicking it will reverse the poles.

Exactly as edgework said:


This is the very first thing that you must decide. Either you go for the perfect image or you go for the perfect representation of the subject. Inbetween these two is a murky area that it's best to avoid.

First you need to know where you are going - then you find out how to get there.

I did a glamour / fashion job. Although I did not go too extreme, I think you can see what I was up to.

...and thank you. This is a great image to work on!

ruud92- sorry to let you know buddy, but you mustve overlooked the horrible skin tones. it looks like she got punched in the face.
