This was a last minute change up from the photo I originally had posted. There is no way I would have perfected this photo without the advice of some of my DPL teammates...Dirt Diver (joe) especially. This was a photo that I originally thought uneditable but played around with it and found something i like and used the advice of my teammates to perfect it.

The editing steps are a little fuzzy because of when and how I went back to edit it.

Post processing (after converting to TIFF):
Heal brush to rid of moles and pimples
New adjustment layer - levels - blend luminosity - auto levels
Unsharpen mask
duplicate layer - blend soft light
Gaussian blur
Fade gaussian blur - soft light
New adjustment layer - hue/sat - remove some yellow and some red
New adjustment layers - channel mixer - played around with the blue and red channels
Duplicate layer - blend mode screen
Master opacity change on screen layer
gaussian blur
fade gaussian blur - soft light
save as jpeg.

She has a nice look to her, and her lips look great. I feel that the noise works well here too.

Dont care for the post processing. It takes away from the overall composition.
