I like how Siciliana's came out, and actually my file is very similiar to yours. I like how her skin doesn't go to smooth and the original texture of her skin is still visible.

Boneappetit... I think you did a great job. I would be very satisfied with that at a higher resolution. Beautiful. My only suggestion would be be brighter eyes and whiter teeth. That seems to be my pet peeve - although sometimes natural lighting doesn't call for it. But in a portrait setting like this with strobe - I like to make the teeth white (even if she is holding a red shiny lipstick sleeve in her mouth)!

Re: Pretty girl for retouching practice

Here is a slightly improved(I think, at least) version of the one I did last night. After my evening cocktail wore off and I looked at it again this morning, I decided to tone down the extreme color I was playing with, I smoothed out some of the tonal transitions and enlarged the eyes slightly.

For some reason every time I look at this picture, I think of replacing the lipstick tube with an ear of corn.

Re: Pretty girl for retouching practice

Here is the image I finally finished, took...I wanna say about a good 4/5 hrs...keep in mind, I'm at work.

I took out the hot spot, fixed the eye shadow imperfection on the left eye, and even finished it, took out some of the annoying loose strands of hair, played dentist and even whiten them a bit, and I did not like the way the feather appear torn or cut off, so I created a good fix so it seems more congruent with the other feather.
This is my first try at portrait as I usually do product retouching.
Please critique!

Re: Pretty girl for retouching practice

Careful with the eye retouch the eye whites shouldn't over power the image less is more in the case of eyes when they start to look like pageant eyes you gone way way to far. The teeth should be natural not to bright again just correct color and remove cast. Some good skin work going on and one maybe because of resizing looks blurred maybe frequency separation and to much blur of a dup of the low frequency layer. Just some general input covering what i see here so far I know maybe I should connect the dots but this is more fun lol....

Thanx for your critique, i agree with you... I should have brighten her teeth a little bit... The problem with the size is because of the 100kb limit... If I make it bigger i have to sacrifice quality... Your tweak on the picture looks good.
