There's a lot of inconsitancy in your retouch. Texture at the bottom of her face, none at the top. Her hand looks like it wasn't included in the retouch at all.

I don't know what you mean by "RTP has lost it's edge". Deviant might be more to your liking.

As far as competitive environment, we do have competitions and challenges, but for the most part RTP is a learning environment. I think because it's not competitve is what attracts many people to this site and keeps it a friendly place.

Re: Need to hear comments

it looks like an overall tone move and you've lost most of the shadow detail...

I like the effect that you're going for, but I have to agree that you're losing too much detail, and need more consistency o/a. Also watch which colosr you push; angelina's eyes are not deep blue, and her hair is starting to read as black. from a 'pure retouching' point of view, both of these would put you in hot water with a client.
