I'm in the same boat as calr, I don't really have an interest in shooting portraits. It made it really hard to find something to contribute to the challenge, but I came across this one burried in some folders. I always liked how my gf was making a squished face as her new kitten was having its face squished against hers, lol. But...my gf had some blemishes at the time, darn, so I never really made anything out of the picture. I know editing isn't really apart of these challenges but the challenge gave me the motivation to learn and try some techniques of removing blemishes. So atleast I learned somthing new :-)
and here's the end result

ahill876,

Very nice job done on the spur of the moment. Yes, we can spend a lifetime engrossed in the possibilities of editing. I am always fascinated by the BEFORE and AFTER.

Thanks for submitting.

Aloha

Nice shot of GF AND the kitten! As far as editing blemishes in the photo, isn't that basically the same as covering the blemishes with makeup??? Just a thought.

good point calr, but it wasn't really a studio setup shot. Just kinda said "look at the camera" and took the pic. I'd prolly be sleepin on the couch if I told her to "go put on some more makeup for the camera", or she'd charge me money for her time and the pic, lol

another thing to note is that it was also shot in portrait mode which I think cameras are preset to bring out redish tones in skin, kind of exagerating the problem

I really don't think "portrait mode" does anything to color. It simply controls optimum depth of field for portraits. Personally, I never use the presets on my cameras and have taught the same to my wife. With the presets, you are letting some computer programmer make your decisions for you.
