    I was wondering how you thought this came out? What I can do to fix his face better. I didn't want it to get too fake and model looking so I tried not to make it "perfect"

    Feel free to edit

    red as in the general tone of the picture? I think when I moved the curves it came from the orange locks.... I never get good tones in that hallway pictures of film. But thats easily fixed

    Here is my attempt at cleaning it up.
    I don't know if it is any better, one thing I noticed is that in the edited imange you have it seems a bit harsh in some areas on the face where you removed the blemishes.

    I do tend to bring the opacity down in some areas (50-30%), but I often to recreate the sample spot on every blemish I fix and sometime two different samples for each blemish, I find it give a more balanced look.
