I'm dealing with an image right now, with some slightly asymmetrical facial features (eyes at differing levels and rotation and lips not symmetrical).
I've processed a version of the image, and the facial features lost all of their sharpness. The eyelashes merged, lips lost a little luster, etc.
I was using liquefy, with the "push right" tool. Should I have used smudge at a high opacity to move things where I wanted them?
I hesitate to post a sample, as the model is on MM and I don't want her to be upset at my criticism of her features.
Oh, this was a full-length shot at 85mm, but the face had recognizable sharpness to begin with.
