Shadow on face...


I'm new to your retouchpro as well as to photography and editing too!

I will post a few photos I've recently taken and hope for some feedback as to how to edit them to create a more desirable finished product.

I am using Photoshop Elements 11.

This one...I don't know how to improve the shadow in her face. Also, I can't seem to create a nice depth of field. I know the photo will look better if I do, but every time I try and create it with Photoshop elements, it looks terrible (although I've only use the simple tool).

Would love some of your ideas.

Thank you so much!

Oh photos seem to be too large to upload. Can they really only be 100 KB? I'm not even sure how to resize them to get to that size?

I've now added the photo...hoping it's not to small for your assessment!

CanadianAussie, Welcome to RetouchPRO
Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends.
Poke around, have fun!
You can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Elements as described here:
Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread, but also please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).
Other Hosts if you do not have your own site: (3Meg max, free) (2Meg max, free) (1 Meg max free, 5 Meg PRO) (100 Meg per file, free) post a link in the thread to the site that is hosting the larger image. (link to the highest resolution.. or the largest size you can upload)
