Here's my trys. To me, if the eyes are not sharp, nothing is. In the color example, parts of the face were softened and some color intensified. The eyes were sharpened and being that the right eye was lacking in color I replaced it with the left eye color.

The bright hilights are normal for on camera flash and are always a problem.

The B&W is just that. A bit of Hollywood style B&W processing.

Bored at work, so did some small stuff

Ringed the eye with a darker black, changed her eye color, and pretty much myspace glammed it



Oh other edits include shrinking her chin, modifying the structure of her nose, and removal of skin differential.

Unfortunately the sourch image isn't large and strong.

Well. here's my attempt. Didn't know how far she wanted to push it so i pushed.. far =)



Things done: Skin blemishes removed, Blotch reduction, Smoothing, Sharpening, Eye detail added and enhanced, Lip color boosted, Background reduced, Luminance values changed.

And here is a slightly less retouched version. Same things but background retained and a bit more colour added.



Comments always welcome =)
