    She had went to get her senior pictures done.. And was on her way back while i was at a friends house, they stopped by and her mom wanted me to get some pictures.. So.. there's one of them.

    These were just kinda random.. Like, I had no intention of taking pictures.. lol. And they were just to "see what i could do"

    Looks good,
    Did you happen to soften her face and cut some of her eyebrow out?

    It looks like a good shot, but that the PP ent over board!

    I don't mean to be harsh... the face looks like plastic, and I feel as if the arm has been digitally scultped (?). I also feel that it is too saturated/vibrant, but that may just be my taste.

    However, I think the lighting was good. Could you post your original?

    She had acne on her checks/nose. Had to do that to overcome it. I personally thought it didn't look to bad as far as the PP goes, I've seen worse done when softening a face. I also like a colorful picture. Are you on an LCD monitor? Could be the case there too if you haven't calibrated it.

    Your PP looks great to me. Not overboard at all. I personally feel some of the wedding photographs I see around here are WAYYY overdone, but the brides like that.

    This girls will like what you've done. Good job.

    I agree. The plastic skin look.

    This one looks great though. Might be a bit oversaturated on the skin to make it appear a bit rosey, but still a nice picture.

    PS = Spot heal. New layer. Skin Smoothing to hell and back. Layer transparency reduction to fit.

    There was to much just to do a spot heal, or so i felt at the time. So i did a gaussian blur instead with a layer mask instead.

    OK
    Because you were too lazy to respect either your 'craft' or your subject, you took what might have been a nice picture of a lovely girl and turned it into a plastic looking, stamped-out, garish, over-saturated piece of crap.
