Specific Remove glare from face and bags under eyes

#1
Hi all,

I have some requests for this picture, to remove:
- the glare from the face
- the bags under the eyes
- any other improvements to the face

With respect to the privacy of the other person, I only uploaded part of the image.
The result will be rejoined with the original picture, so preferably do not change the brightness of the image.

Thanks in advance!

Hi - did what you asked to remove the glare from the top of head and reduce the shadows under the eyes. Image needs a lot more than that but since you're stitching into an existing photo, I didn't make any other changes to compensate for color or lens distortion.
Hope this works for you.

Just a little advice jeffK, don't remove completely shadows like the one under the eyes, just make it softer, removing it completely change the volume and structure of the face.

Cheers!

Thanks a lot JeffK!

I agree on that point. Therefore, I merged in the part under the eyes with an opacity of 70%.

@Argos - this image was bothering me all night. So decided to go back in and bring back some of the shadow under the eyes - 2nd edit is below.
I did get aggressive in the first attempt - when I saw the words "remove the bags", I took the OP's request quite literally. Back in my days of print sales/production, I always had to interpret what the client wanted to what they actually needed and what would actually work. Thomas Wolfe got it nearly right - sometimes you have to go home again in order to strike out on the newest adventure. Thanks again for the insights!

Nice! looks a lot better! It's a complicated job because you don't know what exactly the client wants unless is extremely specific, but as a rule, I always go for natural and what I think looks better ^^.

Cheers!
