Re: Retouching Effects

Yes, we are in Arabian region.
Great, this is what i look for, more comments and critiques, i left the space for anyone to crop to a proper composition or perspective, and about the retouch all are welcome to retouch whatever, but i hope the retouch is not going so overdone and be so manipulation like changing the eyes or hair colors, but if that is necessary then fine.
I want to learn more, so i did that to see more about retouching, i can add many photos of that pity boy for retouch but almost all will be the same lighting mostly but poses are different unless you look for different lighting to play with.

A suggestion about composition.. If you are going to include the hand holding the chin.. it might look a little better shooting in portrait mode and include the arm and elbow, so the hand does not come out of nowhere and look as if it might belong to somebody else.

You said to share techniques and see the effects and results so I did a couple examples for you..
first is the original (so an original is posted in the thread).. second one I just cleaned up using the patch tool, softened a bit, and did some dodge and burning, then added a bit of film grain (Creating a Smooth Skin Boy).. third was a Richard Houtby Dragan Effect action (Creating a Rougher Looking Young Man)
Thank you very much for the retouched and the action, so interesting!
