rayray, welcome to RetouchPRO

What retouching software do you have? This will help focus the tips to the programs you have available to work with.

The picture was only taken Jan 28.. so 4-ever must have a different meaning to you than me!

Yes, it is blurry, but still a nice shot. Maybe worth the effort. I did this in Photoshop Elements 7. Plenty of Hue/Sat adjustments, some PWL and some painting with color.

Re: Need help removing shadow from face!

May I add my welcome to RetouchPro.

I too a try at your image. Tried to do a little with the blur problem and removing the shadow. I use Photoshop CS4 and the Dodge and Burn tool in this new edition is able to preserve skin tone. I also did a layers adjustment and made a correction in Shadows/highlights. A little cloning and patch tool. I also use a 3rd party filter for the focus and skin smoothing. Not perfect, but improved.

Why did you bump the thread when the last post was 9 months ago? Letting it die that way would have been the best thing to do... or PMing a moderator.
