Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

I figured I'd release a untouched photo for the world to try their hands at. Retouch the photo and repost it back here. I did this photo for the model in the picture this afternoon and will post my attempt tomorrow. I love doing this to other peoples photos so why not let others have fun with mine. Please credit Michael Herb and 204Studios if it ends up anywhere other then retouch Pro.

Thanks and happy photoshopping.

Oh by the way the preview is for PREVIEW PURPOSES! do not try to retouch that 100k POS. thanks

Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

This is the first time I attempted anything of this scope.

- changed catchlights according to Katrin Eismann's book. I think I need to find some other light patterns to emulate
I tried the clone tool to get rid of the unruly hair but the patch tool seemed to work better
dodged and burned the skin and color corrected it
to smooth the skin I used the patch tool mostly (I tried some other things first noise reduction filters/blurring but wasn't happy with that)
added a little bit of texture back with some blurred noise
I patched the left corner of her mouth where the lips were stuck together with a warped copy of the right corner, same method was used with the bit of skin than hung down in the center of her lip.
Smudged the unruly eyebrow hairs and the leftover hairs in the dark portion to the left

I need to study more. Thank you for this opportunity.

reuploaded Jan 29, 2010 - I restored the original catchlights and was a bit more aggressive about her neck. As far as under the eyes - even newborns have that little fold...

Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

Normally I only do restoration work.
My first time working with a beautiful girl.
Gosh how I like them!

Maybe I should venture into retouching.
The girls sure do look pretty.
Thanks for the fun...

Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

Enjoyed the play (mainly like doing photo-art, but still need to keep my hands dirty with photo-retouch work too). Did some ACE, Grain Extract Overlay degrunging followed by Wavelet Decompose degrunging. Added some glow (in GIMP, dup, Grain merge with the resulting layer set to Saturation and then the resulting layer of that set to lighten) and did Dup Overlay blend to help with the contrast. Also some necessary healing brush work (where degrunging alone wasn't cutting it).
