Her eyes still look much too white. Try using the eyedropper to pick a white from her teeth and paint with that tone. Skin may still be a bit too warm.
What do you think of this take on it?

Yes, much better. Now drop the yellow hue by about 50 points....

I still want to keep some yellow to get a warm tone so I like to keep some yellow to give the image a more friendly look but not unnaturally so.


I tweaked my monitor a little to re-make sure it's accurate and then changed the white balance again lowered the hue a bit and used the eye drop on the teeth (which i never realised one could do before :))

Thanks!

With the lip biting image is there anything more that needs doing?

Let's put the fist and last side by side :)

Last has a nuclear glow look to it on my monitor :(

What Dave did for toning looks the best so far IMO.

One on the left looks best to me aside from a very small area near the corner of her mouth where it looks like you cloned out creases.

I think that's the opposite and it's skin imperfections I don't have any cloning in that area. Didn't notice that before but it looks like her skin has a blemish under the corner of her mouth that she bites.
Maybe it's because i've removed so much crap :p

Understood, and too each his own :) However for the "clean model look" Dave's is the best IMO in toning, that's not too say some of your other changes aren't good, just the toning...

Dang, now you guys got me concerned. Is there really red in that edit I did? I thought it was still a bit too warm (yellow) on the left side. My monitor is calibrated regularly with a Spyder3 Elite.

But my eyes aren't.

^^^In the OP's edits, she's much too yellow for my liking.
To me, Dave's (Titus213) edits make her skin looks slightly grayish when compared to the OP's with my non-calibrated eyeballs.

I'm eagerly watching the outcome because
1. I couldn't fix her to my liking (and wasn't close enough to being postable).
2. I have similar color problems with oranges that I'm trying to get rid of.


1D-III with stuff to stick on it:
70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Your edit it by far the best skin tone. The others are way too yellow. I haven't looked at a histogram of the original but I'm guessing that the red channel was over exposed causing the yellow patch on her shoulder. Sometimes people forget to look at the RGB histograms and just go by the overall one which can be misleading.

Look at the red channel histogram of the first pic That's why she has yellow blotches on her face and shoulder:

+1, I tried to fix the "last" shot but the yellows are just too strong and it pixelated too fast. IMO you had the best skin tone (Dave)
