Homework Week : 4 

Photo Retouching

This was fun lesson, I enjoyed doing face & Head transplants!!!

To change facial expression, I did try & used liquify tool but perhaps it was not really suitable for Shabina's portrait (however I have posted it for comparison) so I resorted to Head transplant from similar photo taken at the same time. I think it works ok. For my wife Bron's photo taken when we were in Dubai Museum, her eyes are closed when I pressed the shutter so I have used two source photos taken by my colleague when we  attended conference. I have posted 2 Head transplants & one face transplant  photos. For removal of distracting background, I used photo of lion taken on a Canon Big Cat Shoot in Kent and removed the distracting background of bars etc. and generally tided the background. Hope you like it. The white-out sky photo was taken on Devil's Bridge on the way to Lake District.
