Photo: Retouched version is on the left :)

Basically, every single pore on this lovely girls' skin has been massaged by Photoshop, either by healing, cloning, dodging or burning. I am obsessed with smooth gradations in the skin. I inspect the image from very tiny (2 inches on my monitor) to very large (200-300%) and if I spot any pore or patch of skin that stands out, it gets lightened or darkened until it is no longer noticeable.

Does it look fake and overdone? YES... IT DOES - but for some unknown reason, I LOVE IT.
Not that I would want to make every image look this Photoshopped, but at least I know I can, when I want to :)
