This is great! If you don't mind, could you tell me how you got rid of the light/flare on the left side of her head?
Thanks

That, my friend, is the chef's secret hehe... I'm just kidding... If you take a good look at my go, you'll see I cut her hair on purpose, because of the bright flare. I painted over the background copying the background color, and then I used a lot of burning over her front hair, and painted hair over the zone...

Thanks, I noticed that you cut off the right side. I played around with it but I used a 50% grey layer and burned at different opacities. I couldn't get rid of the flare though. Thanks again

Re: Pretty girl for retouching practice

I'm late to the party, but thought I would give this image a shot. Was a great exercise in working with hair and though I wasn't totally able to eliminate the flare, I think it's been reduced enough to be acceptable. Feedback is welcome. Thanks again for a great image to work with!

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

I think version 4 is great! But I loved your first too (09-01) for those vivid colours that missed in your later versions.

Thanks to all.

Roberto
