I'm the photographer of these images for a mens catalogue shoot.

These images are open for practice. Challenge is pump up the colours a bit, where applicable, even the grey background, skin correction etc.

No cropping please.

proudmothergoth - can you give me some tips? I've been struggling to get a truly believable composite for a while, and you obviously have it nailed.

The Op mentioned that these images are for a mens catalogue.

While some of the retouches here look nice, they are too far from the true colors and textures of the cloths to be usable for true catalogue. High Dynamic range looks get misleading for catalogue. When a buyer orders cloths he or she needs to have a realistic color rendition.
