Need your opinion on my latest retouch

Hi Community,

I would like to know your opinion on my latest retouch, if something can be improved or if this completely sucks.

Thanks in advance,

Mart

Photographer is David Dygert.

I find the picture and edit interesting. The skin almost has a soft sharpness. But due to the skins soft appearance, the necklace may be too sharp.

I like the silky bronzed effect but I think the face is a little too flat and powdered looking in contrast.
Not really sure if it is the face that needs more shading or the front arm that needs less.

For my personal taste the shadows, especially on the arms and hands are too hard and extreme... But the overall look is very nice!

Re: Need your opinion on my latest retouch

My first reaction was "oooo i like this" however i do think its a little over done esp around the eyes and face . The other thing that came up is that she looks very young (could be proccessing ?) Overall i think its striking and a good image but a little less processing and it would of been much better (IMHO) ...R

You nailed it, bro. I guess the photographer is in jail for portraying such young lady! I figured exactly the same than you about her age... And honestly, I don't know if that's because the retouch, but she looks damn young like Brooke Shields in that movie...

Long life to Roman Polanski! =D

PS: I did this retouch while doing whatever other thing on the computer, so I'm certainly don't know what I did here... What I can see is that her face looks quite different from the rest of the image, more softer indeed. I'm not sure about this one

Oh... well... The original pic is quite overexposed, so I drew most of the shadows, then I did all the other stuff and the golden tone.

Re: Need your opinion on my latest retouch

I agree with spotter: I like the bronze effect and the toning, maybe a little too much but this could be of a personal taste. I don't know if the original size looks different, but here her face looks powdered or even blury considering the glow in the rest of the body. Nice concept, although the girl looks too young.
