I donít know if you are talking about my retouch. Anyways, I didnít run any wild filter, just a little bit of liquefy for the flames. I did it all adding fire from others photos, here they are.
I donít know what is wrong in adding something to an image to make it look different, beside my retouch is not only a mix of few photos. I retouched the whole faces and the eyes to get it in the scene and I tried to look like his left side (the right side for us) was burnt. May be, I did it wrong and it is a bad retouch or just you may donít like it, and thatís ok, but I donít think that means ppl donít wants to learn anything, at least Iím very interesting in learning from other ppl, here in Retouchpro and I appreciate critiques of my work to try to do it better.

I'm going to have to try this, but, Saby, you nailed exactly what I was picturing for this shot. Care to share what you did?

Hi BMMack,

free transform all at skew function to get the right angles of the face, than i desaturated the colors with hue/sat,sat: -10 at all, than i changed the rgb space from adobe to AIM trinitron d65g1 which has linear gamma included I did it because the right face was to dark to me, than duplicated the face to a new layer and change it to vividlight mode after this duplicate this vivid layer 3 times so i had 4 of vividlight layers
from the top:
highpass: 1 on and set the 4th layer opacity to 14%
highpass: 7 on and set the 3rd layer opacity to 12%
highpass: 14 on and set the 2nd layer opacity to 10%
highpass: 21 on and set the 1st layer opacity to 8%
these layers gave amazing of local contrast to the face even more what it needs so I put them to a new set of layers and set the opacity: 50%
than the background was selected and copied to a new layer below the set of vivids and the lens blur filter what i've used on it amount 20% but it was too much of blur so i changed the layer opacity to 70%

than I made a new set of layers and put the blurred layer and set of vivdlight layer set -the same order was kept- into my new set

a layermask applied on that new set inverted to hide all and painted with white over I wanted the effect, sadly I think it's ovredone.


if it's not clear just say it and I'll make a screenshot of it

Very nice work, it looks a bit colorless though, maybe that was the effect that you were trying to portray. Other than that the skin looks flawless, completely natural. Very nice work.
