Best regards,
Funny how beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I look at the finished photo and think it's great. The skin doesn't look over done to me at all. I can agree there could be a better match between the face and the neck/shoulder area. Overall it's not that much because I didn't notice it until you mentioned it. I don't think the skin is a 'little blotchy' but I think there is an off red color on the forehead.
Different monitors etc, may show things in a variety of ways. Am I wrong in thinking that uploading here is in JPG? I haven't done any yet (uploading) but JPG's are not that great and deteriorate pretty fast.

If this is your girlfriend Glam, then you are a very lucky fellow. She's a stunner. I think you did a wonderful job on the finished photo. As mentioned in another post here that I wrote, there are a couple minor things. But who's noticing when she's so fab looking.

IMHO, I like the look but I like Glam's better. For some reason after you did this her shoulders are drawing undue attention and look a little like a quarter backs. But the soft look of the face is a nice touch.

Twist - you are butchering the image.

I think that you did a /very/ nice job. I didn't notice her stray hair until it was pointed out by others, but the light hairs on black do stand out now. You might consider a slight focus blur to clean up her skin tones on her chest, that might be more natural than giving the rest of her body the same (subtle) face treatment -- and keep the focus on her face. If she needed a lot of work, that's something else, but she's beautiful and you did a great job of not fixing it if it ain't broke.

I personally like your version best, it's the right amount of contrast and air brushing, it still looks natural ish without trying to hard. the only 2 things I'd change would be lower just a bit the brightness on her shoulder, but don't take all the light away from it, i'll look weird that she's got all this light on her face but not her arm, and the flyaway hairs, they distract a little.

So all and all, good job!!

Good job Glam. Better than most of the 'trial' retouches... they take it too far while yours is rather natural.

Thanks for all the comments. I had forgotten about this post. For some reason I don't get email alerts. I'm going to look into that now.

i think the image itself is strange. her whole chest, back and shoulder area looks very oddly positioned, and not at all natural. that may have worked for a full body shot where you can see where her arm is going, but as a close up i don't think it works too well.
