Re-worked the shot.
MUCH Better. Can I help you with a few final things? It would involve an edit, but I'll tell you how to do it yourself.
I talked with heip who wanted to see the SMALL change I suggested.
It's VERY minor as the photo was inherantly good to begin with. This is just one of those little things that can help a photo get good reprint $.
In the retouch, I went to "Filters: Liquify", in Photoshop. I gently tucked the man's chin in. While I was there, I also lowered his hairline to a more youthful look. Nothing crazy.
There was a bit of stubble missing on the new chin, so I filled it in a bit, and deleted the shadows of the old chin on the neck and shaded in a new one that matched the new chin.
Again, it's hopefully very slight, but I think this guy would really feel great about the little touch up. He probably won't see it as a touch up at all. He'll hopefully just see it as great photography. Viva La Photoshop!
Hope this helps.
i agree it looks much better, they should be very happy.
Thanks for the edit Cindy. I'll be using that for sure.
Thanks everyone for your comments.
Let me know Heip if you need a walk through. I tend to jump over steps sometimes, but once you get it, it's yours for life.
