Wow Garnet

You have an eye for detail I'll give you that. But with this retouch as are all the ones that I do, the final outcome is the decision of the Photographer and the Art/creative directors.
The image was for a natural beauty and health ad. Hence the non-warping" of all the things you suggest. And the hairstylist and Photographer did their best to achieve how the hair looks. Wasn't about to go and change their vision. Its their image not mine.
Its not my job to go out there and make all of my retouches meet a "look". I don't have a "Look". Its why I keep getting work. I know where the boundaries lie and respect them.
But thanks for your comments. For a different type of retouch if I was off by that much you would be spot on and I would have appreciated your observations.

Chris

Is there a specific reason you can't leave it open until start time? Is there a size limit?

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE - Chris Tarantino 08/01/09

my computer has been going crazy. It took me a while to figure out I couldn't use the latest firefox. So when I got into safari things started up, but then it would lag out for long periods of time. Is there any chance this will air again?

Registration closes an hour before showtime because they're done manually and I can't process them while I'm preparing for a show.

Watch the email list for rebroadcast dates.

Yea I dig what your saying but is this natural beauty when the teeth have been over whitened and the knuckles have gone. Why didn't you use one of Marios images you know what he's like with stuff like this and you know how far the whole image will go. It'll give the paying viewers more of an idea of the effort and time and skill that goes into an image.
Seems like an odd choice of images and odd reasons for leaving cross hairs and ugly unnatural shapes, but hay ho

Would love to use any of either Mario's shots. Not an option I'm afraid.
Again, I do not question the Photographer or the Art/Creative Directors.... that much.
But if that is what they wanted its what they got regardless of my artistic aesthetics.
