The judges, myself included, were surprised and delighted by all the different approaches to Member Challenge 12 | Retouching. We could tell how hard you all worked, but in the end there is only one winner. Congratulations to Svetlana VanKempen for perfecting the retouching challenge and landing first place. Your final image stood out among the rest because of your incredible attention to detail.

Community leader Suzanne came in second place because of her awesome hair and brow retouching. Way to go!


We can’t forget these honorable mentions (from left to right) by: Nancy Foley, Alexandra Giamanco, and Scott Jeffcote.
