    Re: Simple Portrait

    Nice photo of beautiful girl. Personally I'd like to see a different method for clearing up her skin. ect.. cloning, healing or dodge & burn. Also, would suggest cloning out single strands going across face and over nose. Also, you could work on the lips, particularly the indentations. Some would probably disagree but I also like to see some of the fly away hair left to give a more natural look. Don't mind me, when it comes to critiques I love to pick. Hope it helps.

      You have this listed as a portrait and not a glamor shot. So with that in mind, I think you may have smoothed away some of her identity by overly smoothing and not accounting for facial structure. The changed jaw line and absence of cheek formation is what caught my eye in particular.

      The hair has a "cut out" look on the edges making the appearance quite unnatural with fly-a-way hair only against the skin.

        You've flatenned the chin too much IMO.

Other then darkening the background I really didn't do to much to the image other then applying some minor touch up with the Nik filter for portraits...

          I'm new to RetouchPro and find it very informative. I shoot weddings and portraits and post process with Photoshop Elements 5.0. I am wanting to "graduate" to something like Portrait Professional to more easily adjust skin tones, etc. I have the trial version of PP and it seems to work...
