Re: Retouch Q- contrast/light?

Done with Corel, adjusted tones and removed some specular highlights.

Does the original photo need to have been taken in natural light, as the goal photo clearly is, or is it something that can be achieved through retouching? Curious what y'all would do.

Note: original photo not taken to mimic goal photo, it just happened to match. I'm a fan of this photographers work and would like to work to get my photos similar in style/lighting. I use Gimp, but I also have photoshop elements.

Thanks in advance for your help!
