Hey guys I'd like some C&C about the PP of this photo.

Do you think it's "too much"? Does it look too clean?

Thanks, I didn't send her the results yet but hope she'll indeed like it and not be sad for it to be too fake ;)

What do you mean by "too clean"? I think it looks good, I'd probably whiten the teeth just a smidge.

Thank you!

Finally she indeed seems to be happy with the result :D

That's what I meant, maybe it was already too smooth (skin), too white (teeth), too.. cleaned up ;)

But I guess the overall opinion is that it's not that bad, thanks for your input

Her skin is already really nice. A couple of small blemishes in my opinion makes it real. Sometimes a tiny dark spot can be removed with no sense of losing realism. But Gaussian filtered skin is pretty obvious. It's perfect. I do have a friend who is approaching 60 and she has the skin of a 20 year old. I need to see small pores and things. I prefer completely realistic.

Right, that must still be some of the lipstick, I tried to remove it all but I guess not enough, thanks

the lighting already took away some blemishes I think, it wasn't too difficult to work on the skin. When I try new editing styles, I tend to do overdo it and I was afraid it may have been the case here. It seems though that most of you think it's ok, so I guess that's the way to go :)

She's only 24, at 24 I also barely had any wrinkles ;)

I used "Frequency separation" to take out the blemishes and smoothen it a bit. It was a first try and I think I'm pretty much content.

Thanks guys! In the end she was very happy with her pics and didn't say it was "too fake" :)

Is this a serious question??

Look at the the photos posted. The "sooc" labeled photo appears to be a crop of the "edit" photo which cannot be if the "sooc" version is actually the whole original photo. So the OP must have mislabeled the photos throwing the whole discussion off.
