Re: New Retouch Photo

You've done a fine job straightening, cleaning up the brickwork, removing grass, etc. To take is just a step further, try correcting the perspective -- make all the frame edges (sides, top/bottom) parallel to the canvas bounds. I think this will strengthen the composition.

Thank you LonK, do you mean the door frame? Trying to understand what you mean, sorry.

Re: New Retouch Photo

nice work there
two things i would add to this photo
1- More clen up to the brick wall (spend more time on details)
2- I would add a vivid color to the wooden door frame and try to fix up the upper part (the green one) with some cloning

all in all
Well Done

Tones... Face - chest - Arms --- You have 3 different skintones/light (specially concentrate on her green chest)

Dress could use some ironing.

and everything mentioned before.

Here's a 5 minute sample.
