Before and after retouch critique
I posted this along with some other photos from the same shoot recently and have been receiving mixed feedback. Some from this series have gotten me my first 4* ratings and someone else went through and blasted them all with a 1* rating. I've also gotten some critique on the retouch. I'm legitimately interested in perfecting my craft and getting helpful feedback, but most of these ratings come with no recommendations on how to improve, so I'd love to post the before and after here to get some more detailed opinions. Thanks for your time!
(I'm not interested in anyone trying to justify past ratings or make me feel better/worse, but I do want your feedback about the retouch and ways to improve with less/more work in certain areas.)
