Hide the boobies

I took a picture of one of my friends and she cringed at the thought of showing her breasts in the pic to her momma. So I hid them. Again is there anything photographically wrong with this photo and what can I do creatively to make this photo stand out?

Good job. It looks like some of your contrast enhancements were done globally, rather than with masking. Also, look at fixing the harsh contrasts on the face. Otherwise, you may get more creative feedback by posting the after shot in a different forum, i.e. retouch or photography.

Nice job on the fashion cover up.

My .02:
* Looks like you lost a little facial skin tone in your 'after.' I'd restore that from the original.
* Your before and after images have numerous highlight (sunny) areas (background, jeans, steps, etc.) competing with your intended area of interest: her face. You might consider toning down these distracting highlight areas so one's attention goes immediately to her face.

Good luck with your project; hope this helps.

Re: Hide the boobies

this is more a retouching job than restoration. moving it to that forum.
