Extreme closeup

Hi!

I have got a 31mpix closeup image that I am editing right now... My problem is to figure out how to retouch the skin so it looks clean but not flat.

I want to keep pores obviously, but I still want a clean result.
Normally I use spot tool for skin retouch, but I have only used it for images that are not shot as close as this!

Take a look and if you have got any ideas, let me know!

I'll upload a crop to my server 'cos of the 100kb limit on this forum...

Thanks

Kris

Kris, welcome to RetouchPro. A pixel level Dodge and Burn is the way to go if you want to keep the skin realistic.
Regards, Murray

Re: Extreme closeup

You can do that by splitting the image into 2 frequencies and smoothing the low freq layer. Check the high pass sucks thread at model mayhem. If you want better results than that, you are gonna have to spend some time cloning, healing and dodging and burning.
Good luck
