The raw file for my image

Postby NicoleAu » Mon Jan 12, 2015 11:34 pm

This is what I did with it & from critique I've read, there are a few things I can see that might need changing. However I am curious to see what others would do with it. I'm glad that the rules include only posting the results on this site :)

My bad. I was thinking of the screen width, not height when I changed it from a landscape crop to a portrait one.

Helllo all.. With the permission from Nicole I thought I'd share the PSD file as to how I retouch her image for educational purposes :)

Download from here >>> https://www.copy.com/s/YDuJs8GXy6N4J7Yg

Enjoy

Cheers

Nice work Chris & Tom, it's always interesting to see how people interpret an image.

I tend to keep my white balance set to the warmer side, then correct in post. Works easier than auto WB, which can change from photo to photo at times.
