    These are a couple self portraits...I think the retouching on #2 is a little much, i'm still going to go back and tweak it a little bit. However, it was suppost to look "ultra glamour"...almost plastic like I guess you could say. Anyway, any thoughts???

    I think the retouching is a bit much...but if you were going for that 'plastic' type of look...you are pretty close. When I think of a good 'glamour' shot...I think good lighting. It looks like you were using on-camera flash...which doesn't help.

    Also, your expression doesn't look too glamour to me. It's more of a worried or scared look. That's not a bad thing...that may have been what you were going for.

    Yeh, I agree^. I think that the retouching looks too fake, and I also think that you should try a different facial expression. And maybe going outside would help.
