Quality is one of my main concerns when it comes to editing.
I don't want the images to look plastic or overly processed so I try to make them as close to real as I can.
As you can see there is still some work done on each image... Skin, Color, Atmosphere, Sharpness, Detail, Lighting... I'm tryting to preserve all detail but make it just look a bit more 'magazine like'.
This processing takes a lot of time and it was a long way in learning to use Photoshop without ruining the person, the expression or the important features of a face / body that makes that person to what he / she is.
