This sounds fun
Here is me!
I didn't want to spend all day screwing with the background so it looks a bit chunky, and I was lazy feathering the hair. I wanted to go for a sort of painted look w/o coming across too much like a Dave Hill style. This was a quick edit...about 20 min?:
I think I preferred the lighter-toned version. Oh well.
Meh. The more I look at it the more dissatisfied I am.
Haha very cool! I hardly recognize myself. Very nice.
It makes you look very...azn pride.
My friend Sharon, wrong time of day, but we were sight seeing and she wanted proof she had been to the beach in nice weather while on holiday LOL
I've got one, but I would like to send the larger file for you to use, if possible. It's one of my son on his bike that I want to have on canvas and gallery wrapped.
yours looks similar to my edit, although I sucked at removing the shadows from her chest I wish I had her blue eyes
Post it up!
I just realized I totally forgot to take care of the shoulder. And I need to clean up the chest. I can re-work if you want.
Edit: corrected version is up.
That shot is a TALL order to filll. It's gonna require a fair bit of tone mapping and quite a bit of time but I think I can pull it off with a high-res copy.
Even with tone-mapping, lightening those shadows introduces a lot of noise. Recovery is practically impossible in RGB and almost equally impossible in Lab. There's only so much noise removal I can do, and surface blur seems to have little effect. The only way for me to lighten it and get rid of the noise is going to be painting, which will give the finished shot a polished, brushed metal sort of look. If that's not ok, then I'm afraid I don't have much to offer.
