Some dark haired women have mild facial hair. No need to be offensive about it.

Do you think that any " woman" would for one second allow it to be photographed like that?.... Really? Especially a glamour shot? C'mon Darrell offensive? It's starting to become a circus around here.

I don't know about this particular photo, and I think in any case it should be the photographer's responsibility to touch it up.

I have a skin pigmentation condition called Melasma. It causes dark spots, mostly on the face. One of the spots most affected just happens to be my upper lip. It's faded some over the years, but at one point it was the darkest spot on my face, causing it to look like I did, in fact, have a mustache. It was especially obvious in photos. I am 110% female.

I really think this topic should be removed! Its sad that a person would post such a thing! After that I better keep my mouth shut! Enough said!!

NO I CANT! Its not the photographers responsibility to touch it up! This girl may like the image as it is!! When entering comp. against other photographers You bet I would do what ever it takes to make this or any person LOOK THERE BEST!
That reminds me I posted one a day or two ago that was the un retouched one.

Photoshop time! Sorry the post is in poor taste, really!

Sorry I said it was late! I really don't expect to see women with mustaches, maybe its a western culture thing. But if it offended you I apologize!

Regardless of the "poor taste" of the post, I often find overly photoshopped photos, when done poorly can actually DRAW attention to a facial feature. If the rest of the skin is so falsely smoothed, but not that one part, it almost stands out more.
Also, If I am not mistaken... there is a photog I have seen who has photoshopped different parts of model's faces together. One particular model's eyes were very distinct, and I saw them on a different face once.
Aside from facial hair, there is something "not quite right" about this photo, perhaps it's in the photoshop... maybe he made the eyes too bright...or changed something....I'm not sure, I can't quite put my finger on it.... so I wonder if more than one face was used in creating this image.

What more would you expect from this tog. His images bore me to death.

Why would the person in the image complain.

The image shows off a fine strong chin. The shadow appearing under that fine broad nose could be caused by something inside the lens, and yes there may have had a slight eyebrow tweezer malfunction prior to the image being taken.

What more would this person want from this fine image......well apart from a couple of pints of Guinness

It's possible my point of view is different because boudoir and pinup photography are one of my specialties. I say it's the photographer's responsibility to touch it up because I want my clients to see themselves as beautiful so they will purchase the photos.

When i went to Phuket in Thailand there were a number of women that looked like that. The vicar in my travel group told me to steer clear, i may ask him why on Sunday
