Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

I'm happy to see so many responses. Its great to see what a different set of eyes and hands does to my image. I'll give my critique to any of you that want it. I will not just start slinging out opinions unless there wanted. Let me know if you want and I'll tell you what i think. I'm no expert and I'm not claiming to be. I'm learning as are all of you. Here is my attempt. I delivered this retouch to the model and she was very happy.

I welcome comments and constructive criticism. Thanks to all. I look forward to seeing what else people can do.

24studios, It looks pretty good. The only distraction is the bright white circles in the eyes, so maybe take those out.

Anyways catch lights are an important aspect of a photo. They are the specular highlights. they give depth and life to the eye. Without them the eye looks flat, lifeless and cartoony. everything reflective or wet gives off specular highlights. its essentially the light being reflected back towards your eye or camera lens. Below is an example of with and with out catch lights. I'd like to hear peoples opinions on the subject.

I agree with you 100% lips are just um... ya i'd say get rid of them and go back to the natural color. Your retouch could use alittle more time under the photoshop microscope. I picked this photo because it had alot of annoying fly away hair and posed a decent challenge. The hair is distracting and reduces the quality of the retouch. you also smoothed the face but not the neck. when this is done it creates a separation and draws your eye (or at least mine) to the unsmoothed area.

thanks for the explanation. I thought maybe that was why you choose this particular picture. Those fly aways could have been much more easily dealt with before the capture. I like the sparkles you put in her eyes. If you have chance I'd like some C&C on mine

Can I invite the others to artify (yes it is so a word! :-)) my retouched version?
