My only concern would be whether it's cool for me to republish certain images (some seem to be celebrity stock, etc.). We can chat about that when the time comes.
I agree... !!! : )

Re: Who is the BEST retoucher here?

How about these three categories, to be more concrete:

•Best portrait retoucher (if you retouch headshots or full-length shots of models or general clients, this means you)

•Best product retoucher (if you retouch photos of cars, perfume bottles, industrial equipment, etc. etc., this means you)

•Best artistic interpretation of any subject (if you do smudge painting, Corel Painter work, use Photoshop plug-ins, actions or brushes on any subject, this means you)

Surely somebody here is doing post-processing work in one of these categories and is not shy about sharing it in this context!

Stay on the shiny side of legal and make sure to only present images YOU shot (I guess that means you might also be the best photographer here too-!) and can give permission to reproduce in a PDF magazine layout. You should also have model releases on file for any photos featuring people.

Re: Who is the BEST retoucher here?

I don't really have a portfolio. When I die, then all my results will be spread into cyberspace. lol

I do my hobby for a way to keep my mind active and forget the ilks that have been weighted upon me. If my results bring a smile to others, then that makes me happy too. About to PM you Pix.

There we go! And I don't even intend to reveal the Featured Artist's techniques, just his or her results.
