So in the past I've generally stayed away from heavy editing in PS, mostly because I've not done much of it in the past, and Lightroom does such a great job that I haven't seen a huge need. I never learned how to really use Photoshop to it's fullest and I'm not saying that I have now, but I did some heavy layering etc to this photograph. Needless to say, I'll be using PS a whole lot more now that I have learned some techniques, I think it really made a huge difference in the photograph. So now comes my request, I'm wanting your opinion, is this photograph believable? I did a lot of adjustment to it, but tried to be as conservative as I could (a lot of steps, but very light on them all). I'm hoping the PS doesn't show too much, the model will notice, but I think it's flattering. But if you hadn't seen the original would you think this photograph to be retouched? I'll post the original and then the version I edited heavily. The first one has just had basic global adjustments made in Lightroom. I can describe my method for touching up this portrait if anyone is interested, but most of you probably already do this sort of thing easily.
