More Photoshop.

Here's the original:

Here's the Photoshop'ed:

So, this is my second real attempt at Photoshop-ing something. The main thing I wanted to do in this picture of Maranda was remove the lone strand of hair from the left side of her face (guess really it's HER right side..). So, I accomplished that, with little bitty scars, right? Eh. If you look closely, or you may not have to, hah, you can see the mix-match of light and dark around her cheek. That was the last part of the project when I finally said, "Forget this. It's 4 am. I'm tired. Good night." when the stupid heal tool wasn't working like I would have liked it to. I guess for my second real attempt it's not that bad, right? Tell me what you think. Hope Maranda didn't mind me experiment with the elements on her face, haha.

Now that I look at it again, that right cheek really bothers me. Gah. I'm going to bed before I fire up PS again.

I tried earlier to comment, but my computer must not have worked.
Anyway, good job!
Have you tried to use the clone stamp tool? You can set the transparency and the amount of blur. That is what I use to take out objects and it is easier for something bigger like a hair strand. I used it to take out the roof line and the grass in the picture of Mana jumping in front of the target. If you need any help or questions in Photoshop I'll be glad to help.

Thanks Tammy! I haven't really used it. I'll try it out. I didn't know you had a blog, lol. :)
