Try Retouching This Gal

Hey,

So I've been crawling around retouchpro and have evolved as a retoucher quite a lot. I've also went though Lynda.com Portrait Retouching and read some free books I found online. I'm getting pretty good at things like basic touch ups on the eye, lips and face but I want to start learning how to make simple photos more interesting.

I have a photo that I THINK has SOME potential and would like to see if anyone can make this fairly simple photo into something more interesting. I have learned it takes nothing but hard work and time to truly master retouching so if anyone would like to take a crack at this I would be grateful to learn.

Here is the Link to the RAW:

Re: Try Retouching This Gal

anakngpasig did you purposely make the picture look like death? LOL
I personally would have darkened the eyebrows a little because they're looking a little sparse now that you lightened her skin but damn I really like the color you've made her skin and the overall tone of the picture.

Heres my try. Could have fixed the background too.. But the little darker bottom of picture makes the eyes to wander up to lighter upper corner and right to the face =)
