Hello everybody, this is my first retouch after seeing dvds from Natalia & Vitaly (amazing resources!). I'm open to constructive critics, the shoot is made by me, and is meant to be a practicing image. i tried to make a rollover image, tell if it works or not!

There are many people who dont know how to use web links big_smile, probably he didnt know he has to add cursor over the image smile Its working fine


Regarding your retouching for the first one i think the skin is amazing, but i am not a retoucher...In my opinion you should play a little more with light and color.

my purpose was to  train on skin retouch mainly, i noticed a lack of colors, but it was not my goal to achieve a colorful portrait. i'm much worried about sharpness and composition, i think there's something missing. anyway, on the same page i've added another pic from the same shooting, but with different light. check it out and tell me what you think about it.
