A before and after retouch comparison.

Considerable work in skin smoothing, while keeping skin texture in tact. Sharpening of the jewelry, clothing, hair, eyes, etc lends itself to the appearance of smoother skin.

Brought the eyes out. A few selective color toning adjustments, and thats it!

Apologies, this photos has been severly resized down, and was actually uploaded from my iphone, but it retains enough integrity to show the edits well.

Retouching appears fine....the skin is not over done as is often the case. In my opinion, the portrait would be a little better if she were looking more toward the camera...but that's just me.

The retouching is great. It's lightly done and not over-processed.

Unfortunately, the color portion of her eyes and her pupils are hidden due to her looking out of the corner of her eyes.

But as for the processing - nice work!
