Re: Little gift for all of you guys

Diego, Thanks for the play!
Pretty lady and a nice shot!
Thought I would try your high res RAW file instead of the snapshots that I am used to working on..
The leaning buildings gave me a headache.. hope you don't mind the background change.

Re: Little gift for all of you guys

0lBaldy good interpretation, yes the Bg looks like an Earthquake with that building I like you background.



TommyO, Yes the image in the raw was a shoot a did last week and I wanted to give to everyone to practice with and the image on the rollover image is a client image I'm having problem to get rid of the noise on the shadow areas.

Re: Little gift for all of you guys

Something like this? A very quick try, so the edges are not perfect and blending could be better.

Made a duplicate layer and smoothed out the whole thing using surface blend.

Converted the layer the black and white, applied a black mask and painted in white with a soft brush in the shadow areas.

You now have an image with the the shadow areas under the jaw and chin smooth and in black and white.

Create a blank layer, change to colour mode, pick a sample colour from her face and paint with a soft brush over the shadow areas, a little gaussian blur, adjust opacity to taste.

I only noticed the corners of the eyes after I had finished, so I cheated and painted them over with blue sampled from a nearby area.

Just noticed that I missed a bit beside her bracelet :-)

Re: Little gift for all of you guys

This is my attempt. I feel I may have made her skin to reddy/orange like a tan. What do you think?
