    In order to improve my Photoshop skills I visit found photos websites and retouch any and all that I can find. Hopefully it will help me land another job in a semi creative place since my training in traditional pre-press camera work is basically worthless these days and I thought I would show off a little. :)

    I figured since we have so many good photographers here, it would be cool to compare notes.

    Yes. So far, this thread is not at all what I was hoping for.

    My latest project is to get a better handle on controlling curves. Seems to require a delicate touch that I've not quite gotten the hang of.

    k seriously now

    before


    after


    I made some color adjustments, layer masking, blurred and desaturated the background a bit, cropped a bit to get the focus on the 3 girls, dodged some areas of their face and some unsharp masking to top it off.
