Re: Retouching young man

@Verywierd: I tried to open it in safari and it definitely looks better. Later i open it on the other pc i have here, maybe it's only my screen.

Ciao!

Thanks for the feedback.

Odd though, according to PS, the whitest points on the forehead are around R244, G232, B220, which is very light, but not white. As for the skin tone, I started using Fujichrome almost since it first came out very and I like warm skin tones. I find the current trend for greyish desaturated skin too corpse like for comfort. I guess it just proves that I'm not keeping up with the times :-)

Re: Retouching young man

Ok I should say it different way. This highlights on forehead are not blown i clipped meaning the are jus too bright for my taste. When it comes to skin color I've checked RGB and CMYK values in Photoshop and it's really high on yellow. In my opinion he looks really strange, like having some skin illness or sth different. Of course it's dramatic and has some kind of effect (maybe for editorial work or some crazy promo shot but for everyday portrait I would not accept such skin color as a client. It's just my opinion an I'm not a pro in this business.

Re: Retouching young man

Could you possibly have some barrel distortion in your pic?

I tried your picture but did not go for the Dracula look.. A couple curves adjustment layers could probably achieve that look though. hope it looks Ok.. I have nothing calibrated as this is just fun for me

Re: Retouching young man

Hi. Here's my version of the image. It has less dramatic look than yours. But the proportions of face parts seem to be preserved.
What do you think about it?

Re: Retouching young man

Hi! Can you please upload it in full resolution on imageshack? I hate Low res photos.


The color looks awful, i don't know why.. i also checked it on a other Monitor.
Can you upload your psd file so i can look at it? I hope it's not my Monitor? Did you start from the Raw file?

I did a second version, because my first was relly crap. Not a lot better, but a bit. I think the front is still to bright...A honest and severe comment by a pro would be much apreciated Maybe it's still to smooth?!

Thanks!

Ciao Sebi

Re: Retouching young man

The Hair looks nice! But you know, on this resolution it`s difficult to take a closer look
