addition: I like the way you left some wrinkles too with this edit. This very much gives/keepes the shot (and thus the person) some character.

Jason, I'm on the newest version of firefox. Browse, select file, upload, browse, select file, upload. Maybe you have to be a senior member, I don't remember.

Here is my try. Some basic skin cleaning and wrinkle reduction. Averaged the skin color to get rid of some yellow. Sharpened the eyes and added dark rings around them with burn tool. Shrunk the nose and bloated the eyes in liquify. Oh and I replaced one eyebrow with the other. The background is a complimentary color to the eye color I did using a color wheel action.

Oh nice!

There are many aspects I thought about also. Like bloating the eyes and schrinking the nose and even the shape of the chin and neck. I like the subtility with you've done it.

Yes there was a problem with the light, intruding some yellow...

I think changing the background still needs a completley different technique or refinement, because actually it is distorting the entire good retuching work somehow (around the hair).

She definately looks younger now.

You are absolutely right about the background Jason, the mask I used was not bad I just didn't take any time refining the blend. I like a phrase Chris Orwig uses (endlessly) "subtle yet significant". I tend to over do so I do almost everything on a layer and then back it off with opacity.

thank you for your kind words. She does have beautiful eyes! Sorry about the size As far as techniques go this was done using
selective adjustment curves a bit of d&b and cloning, the usual really and then some sharpening. I didnt spend that long on it so there are still many stray hairs and things i would work on with more time.
thanks
