@Soaringturkeys, by grading do you mean noise reduction or skin softening? If so, I can kind of see what you mean there. I’ve done a lot or portraits of women which skin softening is more desirable and necessary but that does make sense with a guy.

Lol, though, the first image is actually me. My friend took it and I did the editing. She and I do that for each other all the time- give the credit to the shooter and do our own editing. I am usually very uncomfortable posing for photos myself, but practicing on each other helps each of us coach someone for posing.
