I've been meaning to make this post for months but I simply haven't had the time. It's a walk-through image build of two shots by from a series shot by Dino Dalle Carbonare that I retouched for Super Street Magazine, I think most of you should find it pretty interesting.

I think that pretty much sums it up. Read all about it here on my blog

Although on my screen they do still appear bronze, it's very slight - I never even thought about that lol. Although in the magazine they do appear fairly bronze still as well.

Sean,

Thank you so much for putting this together. I tried following through it on both those images and there are the results I got. I know they aren't perfect but I have learnt a few new tools in photoshop that I never knew about, like the adjustments layer. I used to copy the background layer and then make adjustments to that and then mask it, which was a pain.

No worries! As long as you took something away from it, it was worth my time!
