Portrait retouching

Hello everyone,


Recently I have retouched a portrait to my taste. I would really appreciate your opinion.

Thank you.

Re: Portrait retouching

Hi Operator- it looks quite nice- the hair might be a tad green but it seems to go with the color scheme you've chosen. I do like how you've rotated her face. The hair seems clean and while you've brightened the face it doesn't seem blown out.
good work!

Re: Portrait retouching

Thank you mushmush. Though face is brightened but within sRGB gamut. I would'nt mind to throw photo for closer examination if anyone cares. Just flickr does not allow to zoom in closer for some reason.

Khan, would you rephrase your question?

Re: Portrait retouching

It depends on what you are going for. If you are going for a natural look then I would say that it needs color correcting. You went too far is correcting the magenta. The red channel is also clipped in some highlights on the face, fairly large areas. The blacks are also clipped some.

Re: Portrait retouching

It is far from the natural colour look just kit. Colour correction has only been done working on the RAW file. My intention was to introduce some colour cast and play with channels, introduce some gradient map, retouch it and etc. Clipping is so minimal( I checked it my self) I suppose for on internet purpose that will do But thank you for sharing your insight and reminding me about colour-correct behaviour. Thanks neb

Re: Portrait retouching

Looks pretty good! I have a photo (b/w) & I hope to colorize it. I use photoshop v7. I did some portrait retouch some time back - however, am unable to find my notes, does anyone have any ideas? I have attached a copy of the photo.

Re: Portrait retouching

It jumped out at me. But I'm on a non-calibrated work monitor, so maybe someone else will chime in.
