Depending on who you're shooting for dictates how much you can (or should) manipulate.

I would like to see a D with a ring round it used near images of significant manipulation

Like the c with a ring round it is a copyright symbol

I cant find either symbol on my keyboard!

My contribution. For awhile I tended to prefer warmer pictures. I'm now going back and forth with the temp slider    It really just depends on the mood I'm going for...
As for the PP debate. I say go crazy. imagery has been idealized going back centuries. Do you really think those paintings are that "realistic". There were only a small fraction of painters who sought to render a true-to-life portrait. Most royals had their pictures fudged. It's in our nature I guess.
Just be conscious of the format. Depending on who you're shooting for dictates how much you can (or should) manipulate.

Darnell- I too like your PP treatment of images. In the examples did you use only temp sliders, seems like additional treatment of added noise + darkening of grays?? Would love to know your take on it. Thanks.

You are correct in your assumptions. My mention of color was more about setting the overall tone/mood of a particular images. The "thinker" was done with mostly color manipulation (desat. brushes), burning, sharpening.
The basement scene included all the above plus a bit of filter>render>fibers, dodging. I had to bring in a second RAW underexposed -2 for the light over his head. The real fun part was recreating the color of the original scene. The room he was in was much warmer so I lassoed and feathered to get the separation (I don't like masks much). I use the history brush to get the floor to fade from warm to cool (I like the history brush).



Thanks Edmund.

Hi André, I'v taken the liberty of doing a slight retouch.
BTW - incredible job on those eyes!

She looks likes she has too much blush.  Her cheeks cave into her mouth now.  Love the color though.  Perhaps if you had used a layer mask to draw the effects in it might appear more natural.

"Whats PP?"
Given the examples it looks like 'Plastic People' to me. But hey, if this is where the money is... To me this kind of retouching looks artificial and does not make models more attractive. Actually I prefer real paintings to fake photography.

You have some bad sharpening there; the image has serious haloing problems around her posterior and the boundary between her top and bare shoulder.
