Shot these a while ago, and although I have edited these myself (I'm not a  retoucher) I am offering these up to see what you retouchers can do.

Here's the link to the 16bit Tiffs

Thanks in advance.

Don't be afraid of saturating the color and cropping these shots. They All look better cropped.

I shoot low contrast so these all need to be punched up.

If you are editing the images in your own interpretation you can leave the images anyway you like. Be creative and different.

If you are editing the images to the client's style then you need to adjust the color temperature and curves when processing. You should study his/her site to see what color, tones, contrasts he/she like. It's just not getting the skin right.
Remember that a raw file has almost nothing set. You need to adjust many things.  I shoot low contrast and unsaturated so that I am sure to keep the details as much as possible in the highlights and shadows. Don't be afraid to change
I see many results  that look very gray and muddy.

Just my personal feedback.

Thanks

Paul

So based on your feedback I played with the curves  and saturation some more...is this better?
