Some Retouches

I like a picture to be colorful and not so much brighter in non magazine pictures.
What's your opinion about those pictures and also what are bad in them?

Re: Some Retouches

Personally I like the originals better. To me the colors are better and they look "sharper." Obviously they could use some basic cloning still but the originals are quite nice.

I also like the originals. The color on the edited ones are too exaggerated, even for a color-blind person like me! Details also seem to be lost.

Do you have a calibrated monitor? You realize that in the original examples they are Very, very orange, right?

Re: Some Retouches

Kinda but it's very old and not have so much color, but yes it has a lot of orange color who should disappear.

The last one is prefered into a magazine wich yes i can work with that but the first one is just for fun and to show every color spot that's what i like like a non puplic picture. I like a lot of color in it.
I don't have so much pictures to improve my skill so it's still not very good.

Re: Some Retouches

The makeup colors looked professional in the originals, but look amateurish in the retouch. Particularly the lipstick colors. The shades you chose remind me of little girls playing with their mom's makeup. I'd reference current makeup trends if you intend to change the makeup color. Remember that darker lips age people, and strong eye-makeup with strong lip color look slutty.

Re: Some Retouches

I'm bad with lights and most everything but i don't get it why everyone prefer a picture retouched almost black and white? Yes it make the skin more perfect and no much visibles of something bad in picture but also it destroys all color in it and make the person in picture like a ghost. I see rare people who let the color in picture and work hard on them and picture is more better that the other.


2 more retouch I hope they are better.
