Retouching before / after picture

A recent retouch I did was the “Lady Mobster” image with model Patricia. Take a look at the before / after picture to closely see the difference with retouching. As often is the case with my work this image is not meant to be a photorealistic photo but an image which sets a mood and or tells a story. In my retouching I try to give the image a little bit of an painterly effect.

The complete end-result:
[singlepic id=236 w=320 h=240 float=center]
