    Allen or "Lurchy" is fine

    A recap of a old portrait

    Hi all, some of you may recongise the following photo from earlier, but i was bored, hot & sweaty and cant sleep so this is what i been concentrating on for about 45 mins. My cloning skill is no good enough to get ride of her protruding forarm, but i believe i dont atleast a okish job on the selective colouring of her eyes and the flower.. What you think? Be honest now

    Hi Allen,
    I did type a more detailed reply but things went wrong before I posted and I lost it.


    In short I have made some adjustment that I thing give you another option to consider.


    One of the main things I did was to sharpen the picture. I’m happy to go through the work-flow if you wish.

    Well done mate and thanks for sharing.

    Lovely photo but for me convert the green of the leaves so you just have the pink flowers.

    Ok, so i did my best with my skils at removing the forarm(not as good as johns), blurred and smudged a bit of the background, and sharpened her face, hair and flower abit. And i left the green in for now. I know, not the best, but i surprised myself.

    Hi Allen, I grabbed John's (JPS) version because he had done a good job on removing the arm, cropped it slightly, reduced the highlights behind the trees and then lifted the tones in the face. As usual when I rush I over do some thing and lightened the forehead a bit more than I should have. You have captured a nice (pensive?) expression and it is certainly worth you spending your time on the portrait.
