    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.

    The Original:
    [​IMG]

    The Retouch:
    [​IMG]

    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.

    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.
