  • Adding a finger - six-fingered hand

    Hi,

    I´m overall curious about this forum which was I found only yesterday. I like giving good feedback, and receiving the same, so I thought I´d check how the response could be like with a pretty recent retouch of a hand.

    It´s easy to see what my goal has been: a believable six-fingered hand. there are some minor color adjustments, but you can ignore them.

    (BTW, is there a proper place to introduce oneself on the forum? Maybe I´ve searched too poorly for that?)

    Welcome to RetouchPRO. Your "digital surgery" is very well done... so well that IMO many would not notice on first glance. I don't know if that's good or bad.

    If the intent is to capture visual attention immediately, perhaps you could group the thumb and first two fingers like I did in this quick splice.

    In any event your talent is obvious. I hope you enjoy your stay here at RetouchPRO and become a regular contributor to the forums.

    BTW: I edited your creative thread title a bit to hopefully attract more views and feedback.

      Thank you for your kind words, Daniel,

      Ehrm, yes... the original title could actually have kept some people from even clicking.

      You made a very good point with your example - and a really good enhancement that made a more striking impression. It´s very easy to get carried away on the road to perfection - and miss out on obvious chances.

      On the other hand (no pun intended) I also tend to see more/other things when scrutinizing others work.

      Ideally an image/idea should rest a day or two, and even better if another set of eyes can look it over as well.

      Thanks again for good critique, I´ll stop by the salon when I can make the time.

        That was well done.

        Your re-touched photo has a bit of a glow outlining the hand. Maybe it's my computer though. I have to use my older one for now.

        But that's a good job.

          A glowing outline would, per definition, be impossible when it´s a white background, but I know what you mean.

          It´s more a result of sharpeing the image, and thus enhancing stuff in the edges that were there in the original photo (not mine btw). I did'nt care for ultra-high quality, and doing that kind of touching up, since it wasn´t necessary for the job.

          Thanks for the input!

            Gurus - Pl. critique... Is this good bad or ugly?
            by Vinay
            Hi there,

            Glad to have found this forum!

            Can I request the gurus out there to give me some critical feedback on a few pics that I have worked on?

            Also could you rate it on a scale of 1 to 10 - 1 being bad and 10 being good.

            The pics are are...

            Greetings,

            I'm new to RetouchPRO and would like a critique of the attached. The source was a scan (rather small) of my grandfather taken around 1915. I'm basically pleased with my result other than the blownout highlights on his face. BTW, I use Ulead PhotoImpact 8 as my primary editor....

            i've done numerous retouches, restores and photo art on retouchpro.com. i enjoy it. however, there is something that rankles me just a bit from time to time. someone comes in, posts needing help with an image, goes away for a while, comes back and gives maybe a general 'thanks, all', picks up their...

            Irrational phobia assignment
            by renzoski
            This is my first post here in retouch pro. This is my latest piece i worked on for my maps/mattes/masks class here at the art institute of fort lauderdale. The teacher asked us to represent any irrational phobias.It probably took me about 15 hours to finish it....I guess the picture speaks for itself.......

            Hello everyone,

            Though I've been using Photoshop for a few years now, I'm pretty new to cosmetic retouching. The attached photos are my first try using actual retouch techniques and I'd appreciate your honest feedback (please be kind!). Thanks so much in advance and have a blessed day!...
