I have nothing against "photoshopping" or post processing but that's just awful editing. The little girl looks like she was cut out of the original by a rodent chewing on the edges of the photo. There's a significant halo around her and terrible color fringing on the left side of her hair. I'd certainly not want to bring additional attention to it.

Or so says Florida Nature Photagrapher in his post (linked below) responding to my retouch of the OP's photo (per her invitation). Immediately following his assertion are my 2 separate responses.


totally agree, and when I offered it to the OP, I pointed out that in the quick retouch I was showing her just to demonstrate possibilities, I didn't take the time to do a proper extraction. Which is also why I asked her if she wanted to post her image in the retouching forum where some truly talented people could work on it.

She told me she wants a full rez copy of what I did, and I was getting ready to tell her my work wasn't up to snuff and to encourage her to post a copy here where you and others will undoubtedly do a much better job.
