Would anyone like to practice...

Hi,

Have been snooping around retouchpro for a while now trying to pick up tips and help on retouching and must say I have learned a lot in a short time. I am a fairly new photographer and do my own retouching - though sometimes this leaves alot to be desired and perhaps I should leave it to the experts as I am quickly learning there are no secrets and that it takes a lot of hard work, time and dedication.

In saying all that I took a photo the other night that I think has the potential to be very good if retouched correctly and I wondered if anyone would like to see what they can do with it. I have attached a low res version but the original RAW file can be downloaded from http://www.sendspace.com/file/nuy6lm

Let me know if you would like to give it a go. I would be very interested to see what you guys/gals can come up with.

Thanks
Tony

I think you'll get more reactions to this if you just post the RAW on sendspace or something and post the link here.

Hi,

Thanks for the advice, I will update my original post now with a link. Should have thought of that in first place.

Hi, thanks for kind comment. I would be happy for that as long as I could use retouched version in same way...i.e. credit for the retouching?

Credit for photography should be Tony Ball Photography.

Thanks

No hurry, just let me know as and when you have something.

Best of luck with the one you are working on and I hope it gets you the job!!

Have seen some of your posts on here and some of the work you have done so I am excited to see what you can do with my photo.

Speak soon
Tony
