Looking through some old shoots and throwing things out... thought I'd share these with you for practice. It's better that someone get some use out of them before they're trashed smile

Rules of retouching: Please post all edits to the thread so I can see who's using them and because I like to see the results as well. Nothing offensive to the model please and please give credit to me as the photographer and the model on every photo. If the models ask for full resolutions, please give them. smile

Enjoy! smile

Thanks so much for these files!  My eyes need a break after about 4 hours... but I do love doing this kind of work for some reason.  I'll post more if I ever get one to what I think is finished... or maybe I'll start on one that hasn't been touched in this thread yet.  I started trying to get rid of the hair that covers her ear because I've never really tried that before but that's possibly 4 hours or more in itself for me.

Played around with this one.   I saw this photo leaning more towards the pin up type style. A little more smoothing.  I always leave tattoos in but in this case I felt it was better to eliminate it since only part of it was showing.
