The general idea of Photoshop is to help make someone look flawless, while still maintaining their unique and human qualities. It's a tactful technique that requires a keen eye and a good understanding of the human face’s shape. This basic concept was completely destroyed for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar China cover featuring actress Sarah Jessica Parker.
The actress touches the cover of the March 2013 issue looking more like a special effects job than an elegant 47 year old celebrity. The eyes are too piercing, the nose is too flat, the face is strangely wide and resembles more of Hollywood's depiction of a little green man than it does a human. As for what is wrong exactly, I'm not sure where to place everything, but perhaps our resident High End Retoucher, Pratik Naik can touch base on what all is wrong with this photo.
So what do you think, is this a terrible Photoshop fail on Harper’s Bazaar’s part, or is Sarah Jessica Parker just out of this world?
