I have a question. Where do you draw the line...no pun intended...when it comes to touching up a photo? My goal (outside of digital art) is to try to photograph a subject and get a picture that can be admired without any touch up. I know in this category of digital art, reworking the picture is a given, and maybe the question belongs under a different category but it got me thinking when I saw your suggestions penciled in. Thanks...

I really dont know the answer to that, but when you think about it, adjustments to photos have always been around particularly portraits. Dodging and burning, soft focus lenses and great lighting effects are all alterations in a way to the reality of of photo, if not, my drivers license photo would look wonderful but it does not.A true photo with no adjustments rarely looks great.

The photo does not offend me in anyway, however I dont like the way she appears to have baggy skin in the lower area of the body, is there any way you can edit this out as I personally find it distracting and it's a pretty good shot for that kind of thing. I have marked in red the areas I feel need to be edited to improve on the shot. This is only my opinion and I hope it does not bother you:-)





I know that the skin lines disturb abit.

The picture have woke up many opinions, and I take that possitive, isn't that what's it all about :|

I'll work more with the photo and fixsome small things (skin lines and messy background)
