I'm a novice at retouching... please let me know what you think.

May I add this to my port?

Thanx

Update your Camera Raw.  If that doesn't work, download Adobe's DNG Converter (just google that and you'll find it).  Then convert .CR2 files to DNG which you will be able to open.

Thanx Jessica.

Tried downloading a converter but not many for Mac. Settled for Contenta Converter - http://www.contenta-converter.com
30 days trial.

Will try the DNG Converter. Running CS2. yes, I'm late I know.

I must post this under my makeup artist accounts, because my retouch account isn't ready..

I correct the lips and the eye/eyebrow, and the colour and the other standard.
(...and took away a bit of the camera on the left side)

Hope you like it.
And let me know if I can use this in my portfolios.

I like that you kept the freckles to show the model's character and natural beauty, and that you don't made new makeup on  her.  smile
