Please share what you did. I am fine that you chose to edit it, but I would like to understand why and how...:)

Personally, I like your first edit more. Based on the pin-up type shooting, you wouuld want a flatter more "vintage tone". which I think you pulled off nicely. The second edit seems a bit too colorful and contrasted. Just my opinion though.

Thanks Drew, I would agree. I prefer a little flatter look as that is what I am trying to achieve as a "painted pinup" look. I always like to learn though...

Of course, it is all a matter of opinion and personal taste. I am by far a professional and this is strictly a personal opinion. I have been taking courses with NAPP and been applying those to the photography I do. I have never done PIN UPS but hope I do someday. Now, images are always subject to personal preferences but the important thing is WHAT DID YOU WANT TO CONVEY FROM THIS IMAGE. If you wanted a vintage look, I would agree your original image is a bit more vintage than the one I edited and would agree with AE_Photography's comment.

Personally, I like Robert Alvarado's style. He specializes in Pin Ups models *with tattoos. He has vivid colors. That being said, have a look at his photos HERE (external link).

I edited in Photoshop CS5. I added a LEVELS adjustment layer. I played with the line to form a small S. Lower part of the line, i set to output 63 - input 78. Top part i set to output 184 - input 179.

If you look at your original image (left) and compare it to the one I edited (right), I notice that my edit adds more color and is less blown out as the original image.

I love Alvarado's style and like what you have done and your take on it. I was going for more vintage, faded look, but still with pop.

Like I said Scott, it's all a question of personal taste. I wish I had the lighting equipment and space to do Pin Ups. I find your image to be very good, very sharp but just a bit to blow out.

Hope to see more of your work soon !

I have just never been able to grasp levels, mind showing me a screen shot of what you are doing?

I think you hit print screen and then paste it in...but I'm not sure. I have achieved a similar look but not using levels, and I want to learn.
