These are two photos I took in Montreal, Canada, in which I removed most of the transient objects (like people, animals, temporary signs, etc.) in Photoshop.
Exhibit #1: Notre Dame Basilica, before and after
Exhibit #2: Japanese Garden, Montreal, Canada, before and after
This is a series of women’s faces from stock images downloaded from the stock.xchng website. In Photoshop I generally removed blemishes and softened the skin on all the subjects, then reshaped and enhanced the faces to achieve what I believe to be more attractive results (Exhibits #1-5). Exhibit #5 is an age-reduction exercise, and Exhibit #6 is a hi-key adjustment only on a previously processed image.
Exhibit #5. Age reduction approx. -15 years
Exhibit #6. Hi-Key
