Photoshop vs. other photo editing programs

I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the whole Photoshop vs. other photo editing software out there as far as being used as a professional photo editing tool? There seem to be a few strong contenders out there not in Adobe-land (GIMP, Polarr, Pixlr just to name a few). I was wondering if there was anyone out there that's used both...

Steam Powered Tractors

I visited a local steam powered show over the weekend and took a few photos. I really liked the composition of this one, but didn't like much else, so I thought I'd process it in Lightroom and see if I could pull something out of it. Here are the results. A bit of split toning and some other standard Lightroom tricks used.

What else, if anything, would you change? (other than composition, which is a sticking point for me)

First Extreme Shoe Retouch

This is my first attempt at a retouch of this magnitude. is there anything that stands out to you? what would you change? how would you go about doing a retouch like this? I mostly used Frequency separation to clean up the dirt and scratches.

Finding a "natural" headshot retoucher

... It's not easy! Almost all retouchers understandably go towards beauty retouching. But I don't shoot models, I shoot corporate people, and actors. They need to look like themselves. Finding that balance between cleaning skin up, but not looking perfect is a tough find. Anybody have any recommendations? This is the type of stuff i'm looking...

Advice on finding an artistic retoucher for long-term collaboration

I've been doing 95% of my own editing since I began shooting, but for the sake of creative growth and mixing it up (and productivity, since my edits lag behind my shoot pace), I'd like to find a good retoucher to collaborate with, ideally a long-term collaboration

My work is primarily art and fashion/glamour/nude portraits, which a...

Russian Post Processing

Hey Guys,

I'm curious to know where Russian Photographers go to develop their style. A lot of the ones i've seen on FStoppers or 500px have similar editing techniques. Aside from their GORGEOUS Models their color palettes, skin smoothing and even style are very similar. I wonder how they edit their images.

Is green/blue screening skin for retouching later a thing?

I have a shoot coming up that features a sheer-ish bra, and model is not comfortable showing nipple. The bra has fairly intricate detailing, so I don't want to shoot pasties if possible, i got some nipple covers just in case, but I had a thought. If i used blue/green painters tape to cover the nipples, could I then just green/blue screen them...

Pushing my gear to the limit

I've heard many times that shooting against the sun it's not recommended but i decided to do it anyway. To my surprise the dynamic range of my D7000 it's waaay higher that nikon would ever care to admit and using just a speedlight in front of my subject i've managed to get this shoot. Let me know what do you think about it
