Hi All, as usual straight out of camera + Raw File included, just to let you know Raw File is Very large...

Cheers

Thanks for the play Ray. Changed the skin tone on her hand to match her face and lightened the background.

Regards Patsym

Had a quick play until the file size started choking my computer :)....mostly some color correction, skin work, and added some lighting effects.

I've moved the face nearer to the hand colours and used the jumper motive, etc..

Really enjoyed this one! Hope you approve.

Cheers, Tony.

I think it's actually a track-suit but the magenta of that was the direction I moved the face colours which then were closer to the hand tones. Rather, that is, than moving the hand colours towards the yellower face.

I added brightness and contrast to the eyes and teeth and removed a little lipstick colour from two teeth near the right hand edge of her mouth. A little soft focus blur was added after some vignetting.

It is just by trial and error as I am no pro. Others in this forum clearly do it to much higher standards. That's what makes it such a learning environment.

Cheers, Tony.

What a beautiful young lady Bobbie is. Here is my version. Did some color balancing on the hand, and neck areas; did some minor skin fixing; whitened teeth; enhanced eyes; did a little D & B; and gave a glamour type soft effect. Oh, and also darkened the background to camera right of subject's head.

Just thought that the added frame brought her out more

Regards.....Allen
