Where can I get retouching samples?

Hi,

I looked through the site and couldn't find this anywhere. Does anyone know of somewhere where one can download files to practice retouching on? I don't really have very many files that I can work on and most of the work I do now as a photographer is not "high end" enough to be suitable. I'm a documentary photographer...

If not, anyone got any suggestions for the best way to build a portfolio short of getting a job as a retoucher? My problem right now is that I don't have a portfolio that will get me a job, but without the job I can't get a portfolio. The old Catch 22.

Thanks for any help. Love the site, btw.

- James
