    Hi Andy,

    welcome to RetouchPRO!!!

    I love the 'cropping' and the B&W idea .... but, personally, I found the whole composition a bit too dark ... the little girl didn't really 'jump' to my eyes ... she seems a bit lost against the overwhelming wall background.

    Parts of the shadows seem to be solid black blocks.

    I'm more into restorations rather than retouching, so take my critique with a pinch of salt ...

    I'm moving your Thread to the Critiques Forum.

          by Tjoiner
          I am a late-in-life beauty retoucher. More specifically, I'm a 38 yo Nyc makeup artist who's obsessed with retouching. It fills some obsessive-compulsive need in me like picking scabs or something. Sorry for that visual.

          That said, I have no idea how to go about getting my foot in...

          Any advice for retouching athletes?
          by gamedonechanged
