  • Hello and Critique wanted

    Hi all,

    Not sure if this post belongs here or in the Challenges forum, but I'll start here.

    First of all, I'm a newish member who has been lurking in the shadows admiring all the wonderful talent here for a while, and I've just gotten up the courage after seeing how positive everyone's comments and attitude are to take a shot at some of the challenges. I'm relatively new to PS, but I absolutely love it. I've been messing around with it for about a year here and there, but not really devoting any real time to it. I feel I have an eye for art, but have trouble getting the image in my head onto the screen, if that makes sense. I'm learning so much reading through the forums and tips and every time I have free time I try to take in another tip or tutorial.

    I hope to become more of a regular poster, and when I feel I've earned my place, maybe I'll throw in a critique or two here and there. I feel now as an outsider that I want my first impressions to be positive and not "Hey it's good but your fleshtones are way off, try doing this or that"

    Anyway, I've posted some entries into the challenges section, and I would LOVE to hear honest critique back from this group. I would really love to learn to use the PS as the tool it can be, so hearing feedback will help me know where to improve.

    I look forward to hearing your comments, and hopefully getting to know some of you better.

    Wonderful site!! Links to my challenge entries are below

      Is This Where I File My Complaints?
      by blue dog
      I joined this site a few months ago to try and improve my skills with a goal of being able to make some small living from it. Prior to finding Retouch Pro, I thought that I was ready to go, but a little tour of people's work here convinced me that I had a long way to go.

      So, its not all...

      Am I going in good direction? - critique appreciated
      by michalj
      First of all, hi

      I started using Photoshop around 3 weeks ago and I LOVED retouching photos (even if they maybe not love being retouched ). So I just spend few hours a day learning it and getting deeper into addiction. And now I'd like to ask experts what do they think about my first...

      Hello there,

      I've been recently expanding my portfolio, and would love to hear some of your feedback. I'm hoping to approach some retouching agencies later in the year, but I want to make sure I'm not missing a trick in my portfolio.

      I'd love to hear your thoughts/suggestions/critique....

      Honest critique
      by Chrisb0109
      I am currently a photography student with a serious interest in the world of commercial photography. I am drawn heavily to retouching and have always enjoyed working with my images in post. It can be difficult to get critique not so much on the image, but rather the retouching technique. While I am...
