Re: meaning of high-ender

I think we are confusing things.
High end retouch with High end results.
You can do a high end retouch on a bad picture but you're not getting high end results.
I've done some high end retouch for important publications (I'm not dropping links or giving big names out because I think people who does that just have no taste and usually through big names at your face to compensate for little personality in its work)

The thing is, the meaning of high end is right there in the words: Detailed, no imperfection, totally seamless, ICAN'TBELIEVETHISIMAGEHASBEENTRHOUGHPSP kind of retouch.

This takes time, taste, personality and Nancy is right you have to have it.

I've explained a client (she knows her way in photoshop) what I'd done with the file (we are like long distance friends) and she told me I must have the patient of a saint to work at this much detail.

I don't really think that... I love doing it and I'm going to keep working on those files because every day I see some little thing that could be better.

That's why we are retouchers and she is photographer (A great one, by the way)

Just my two cents.
