I'm a 21-year-old photographer from Winnipeg, Canada (although I'm moving out to Toronto next week)! I love retouching as well though, probably almost equally as much as photography.
I just found this forum, and I'm super excited to go through it! Seems like there are a lot of great people and resources here!
Anyways! Just saying hi!
Here is my website, if anyone wants to take a look. There aren't any retouching examples yet, but everything on there has been retouched by me (ranging from when I first started out, until very recently). http://brittany-alyse.com/
