A bit of a slow start, but out of the images posted, I like this one. Nice colour toning here.

So, Placidbabe, your turn to post a picture now!

I prefer Mojo's. It looks most 'neutral/natural' to me and thus focuses on the dog.

Thanks!
Okay here is the next image :) I chose this one because I feel it has way more potential then the original photo shows. I'd love to see what people do.

Yes the vignetting, without photoshopping the BG out I figured I would get rid of as much of it as possible in LR, I wanted the focus to be on her pretty face. Not sure if I broke the rules of the thread? If I did my apologies and I'll delete it.

Basic adjustments to tone and color. I cloned out the OOF specular in the background - it was distracting and cropped to 4:5.

Raw conversion performed in RPP, edits in PS.

Here's my try. I thought I'd go with a reverse vignette including a blur vignette too.

Nope, not breaking the thread rules.

Lovely young gal. Here is what i would probably do:

  • Color Balance left as shot which is a hair warm, but works.
  • Red channel tweaked to what i think the "natural" redness of her skin is, green and blue channels tweaked to balanced. Again, left a slight warmth.
  • Lighting tweaked to make it feel softer, whatever lens this is, it has a slow soft glow in the slightly out of focus areas (see her shoulder) that create a somewhat flattering effect.
  • Did not increase the contrast in the midtones as i wanted to protect the tonality in her skin, but I did tweak darkest parts of the image a bit to make them transition to black a bit faster.
  • Focused on downsizing without losing skin detail, but didn't sharpen because it can be unflattering to skin.
  • Then did one more pass fine tuning some of the colors in LAB mode, trying to get her cheeks just the right shade of natural red and her eyes a touch of blue. Left a slightly yellow hint overall for a hair more warmth.
  • Square crop because i feel like it for headshots.
  • Stop here because normally at this point, I would process it many different ways depending on the my mood and what i was using the photo for

I decided to play up the BG a bit and give her a touch of rim light to separate.
hope this isn't breaking the rules. Let me know if it is, i will delete ;)

My attempt:

IMAGE: http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2822/9802107305_c0dcd2732d_o.jpg

Cleaned up blemishes, removed white spots in upper right corner, corrected white balance some, smoothed skin, copied and added a multiply mask, used paintbrush to lighten subject, merged, reduced size, sharpened with Sharpener Pro 3.
