As the title suggests, it had been a while since I had pointed a shiny lens at an expanse of exposed epidermis and a slight fold in the model's skin at the point of bending slipped through the net.
Knowing that I had too much blur on the brush I used with too much haste and too little time I thought I'd go back and have a crack at fixing it. But when I saw the shot in all its gigantic TIFF glory I looked at the expression and was even less happy with it so I thought, 'Why bother'. Sorry Eden, the blur is there to stay ion that shot.
And you're right Doug (tisk, tisk), all digital is anathema to me - especially retouching. I just sit and lament that the enlargers are in the garage and likely not to be reactivated any time soon.
