    I think that looks great. The only suggestion I might have would be to soften the lines in the neck area.

      Really nice work in restoring the colour. I would say that it needs just a touch more sharpening - other than that it looks pretty good to go

        better or worse?

        I frequently don't know when to stop.

        is this better or worse?

          Without a doubt, much better. I am wondering though, if the size were larger, would the hair have a slight cutout look? Maybe not. Looks good!

            Your first image:
            You did a nice job, and you didn't overdo it.
            Personally I would change the background, as the wavey lines of the wood are distracting, and not a common backdrop.
            You might also consider removing the black (flash) shadow along the side of her arm (on the left).

            Your second image: I like that you've chosen a different background, but I would prefer a more subdued effect (just personal preference). Also, if you choose a background with similiar color and luminosity to the original, it tends to make changes less noticeable. It's often helpful to check out some websites of portrait photographers, to get some ideas for backgrounds and how the light is used.

            No matter what, if you like it, go with it.

                  Beautiful job!

                  The only thing I noticed is that on the example you posted, the vignette is off center a bit. Maybe it was just the cropping to post, but I thought I'd mention it...

                    Somebody should be happy with that one.

                      Could you give the links to one or two portrait photographers. ??
                      I am trying to get a flat portrait image to have more depth or liveliness and have been looking all over RP but haven't found what I'm looking for yet. I know it is here somewhere.

                        A friend of my mothers has given me some photos of her and her husband.

                        I am doing a good job on that part, however, when I print the photo I don't have the same quality that is being displayed on my monitor (i.e. a great looking dark photo may be to bright in print; a good skin color...

                        by Caravaggio

                        I am putting this in the retouching section because I think more users look at this part of RP and getting a solution is somewhat urgent for me. I am restoring an old print that has a dot print pattern on it. There is a vertical crease that runs down the center of the entire print...

                        Sublimation Printers
                        by Balky

                        What do you guys think of sublimation (not sure I spelt it right)

                        I have SONY Printer that uses sublimation method and prints on 4x6 paper. 25 sheets for 15 to 25 bucks. I am sure it is possible to research lower price.

                        I like the prints... you can't...
