haha yeah i m working on a few headshots right now. I wanna do them with d&b mostly for the true beauty part and i'm still practicing with hair retouching a lot.

About Petrova. I googled her and on first thought i didn't know who she was but her site reminds me that i visited it a year ago or so and i was stunned by her images back then.
But no i wasn't quite aiming for that kind of look. It just came while retouching simply out of a feeling that it had too look like this. That image series was simply perfect for this gloomy,warm desaturated look so i went for it piece by piece something was missing and corrected until the finished product. More of a lucky strike i'd say.

But i take it as a big compliment! smile

I somehow have the feeling that i have a slight problem with sharpening my fashion retouches. I don't have that feeling mastered if its too oversharpened partly or if it's not enough and not quite sure what parts to sharpen. I mostly sharpen eyes and lips slightly and what the model is wearing.
