curves for eyes,teeth, backgrounds etc.) Then retouchng , and finally
conversion into the appropriate colorspace for output - We are
moving the website to a different server to speed up loading - thanks
for the feedback! Kevin

Very nice work! I like the fact that although the shots are retouched and processed in a variety of ways, they don't look obviously retouched and processed. Most of the stuff posted in the Retouching forum looks fake to me, so that I often prefer the "pre" version. Yours look quite natural, even though I'm sure they represent considerable improvement on the out-of-the camera images. (Suggestion: include a few pre/post comparisons.)
