Many thanks to the beautiful model, Renee.
Shot with available light in the street on a cloudy day in some shade.
*Some frequency separation to diffuse specular highlights, remove blemishes and lighten shadows & wrinkles around eyes.
*Used adjustment layer to enhance eyes
*Used 'liquify' for minor adjustments to cheeks, nose & eyes
*Applied 'grunge' look by adjusting shadow/highlights, decreasing contrast & adding high pass as per this tutorial:

Very surprised to see this in the top 3. Great picture, but the focus is not perfectly on the eyes, and (imho) this is a big defect for this challenge. Anyway congratulations for the yellow and the nice picture.

Very nice set of eyes with excellent focus, I think some harsh lighting has caused overexposed portions of her face.

Fantastic. Raw and beautiful. The lips are sharper than the eyes which is the one issue here. But a wonderful model, color, and moment.
