    I seriously do. It is not a joke either.

    Do you seriously think a photo of a smiling kid should be full of cold colors ?
    I know it's Halloween and all but...

    That is quiet interesting what you say. You point of you comes form experience. Just in retouching world one sometimes oddly have to push the sliders around either client wants that or retoucher.

    Would you be willing to share your techniques as to color channels, or curves?
    I really love the look you've achieved here.

    Hi,
    I don't remember what I have been using but I suppose curves , selective colour , HSL could be solid colour layer too. Basically I was playing a lot with this photo before I got to this look. And some targeted adjustments.
    Sorry or such a poor answer.

    I think your retouch is spot-on. I wouldn't change a thing.

    I like it...a touch green for my taste but still pretty nice. Imho the teeth need a little brightening & less yellow.....not much.

    Re: Portrait retouching

    Thank you Pari. Strangely enough I thought about filling the gaps around her teeth.Then I thought she is a child and I love it about children loose teeth or bruise on the face. Children run, fall , play and do many things at ones. You know what I mean. it is just my opinion. I believe you have more experience then I do after all. My eyers are tuned
    Thank you.

    Good job!
    I think greens got stronger according to my taste
    Otherwise I would have tried to align her teeth and fill up the gaps between her teeth as those gaps are really calling my eyes too much
    But otherwise I love everything about the image!

    I like! the hair is "ash" not green to me.. why are we so hard on perfection? I would do nothing with her teeth( unless she had pepper or food stuck in between) very pretty little girl.

    It jumped out at me. But I'm on a non-calibrated work monitor, so maybe someone else will chime in.
