Smile Retouch work critique.

This is a Joe Pulcinella photo. You can check out his website by clicking on the link.

I did some healing to the skin, cloning in the hair, making the light in the neck as similar as the face, very subtle dodge and burn, enhanced the eyes, the hair and skin tone.

Please comment and tell me what do you think. All constructive messages are accepted.

When click the link I get a little photobucket image that says the image has been moved or deleted.

I think you did a fine job. Clean and subtle changes for an overall light glow complexion.

Thank you very much. I think it was easier since the model has very good skin and good features and it is a very good picture, great illumination.

I agree, very nice work! Skin looks great, the color and tones are nice, the eyes pop but aren't overdone. One thing I might do (and this is just me) is use the liquify tool and push her earlobes in just a little bit. But that's just a personal preference.

If you check the exif data, you'll see the photo is copyrighted by Joe Pulcinella, a wedding photgrapher from Pennsylvania. You can see his website and contact info at www.photojoe.com.

Thank you very much.
And I agree with you, but in this photo I didn't want to change her features, but in general I'd do that.
