Color is much better. Could use some sharpening.

I don't think that trying to pull of the "depth" of Jill Greenburgs portraits with just photoshop alone is going to happen. Jill Greenburgs work is all about the lighting. She does extensively manipulate them but her work is all about the lighting.

Just had to have a play, mainly multiply and screen using masks and some desaturation, mind you, this is rough and quick

Lots of good work, but as a Don Cheadle fan, can there be a "more" "unattractive" photograph of him?

Thumbs down Re: Let's try this one... Don Cheadle, how to impr

well... my opinion...

this is not about retouching, its about the actor and the photographer.
the only thing to add here, if the client wants more (like they always do), is to do some nice toning on it. dont fiddle with depth and things.

here is just a bashed together sample of some diffrent tonings.
black and white, silverprint, cross process etc.

come on, please hate me!

camilla: there is no hate involved here at RetouchPRO ... only constructive thoughts...your idea around this picture is what I wanted to explain earlier, but my few words in english didn't cover it properly

I agree as well, Don original is the best from our examples, but as well I think this picture is very honest and show a little too much detail of him then ordinary viewers want to see...if this was to be a portfolio picture I don't think he would get any jobs...
