I'm disagreeing with you. I did not touch the freckles, nor did I do anything to the photos that would alter the freckles. I'm not allowed to disagree? She did not have a heavy scattering of freckles as some redheads do. And ironically, when people DO have heavy freckling, I do the exact opposite of what you are accusing me of doing to these photos and actually enhance them and make them stand out more. I'm pretty sure I know what I did/did not do during editing. lol
The skin has been retouched, looking like a gaussian styled skin filtering system (such as Nik, DA's Beauty Box, etc - also achievable manually) with the layer altered in areas of the eyes/lips and then sharped on those areas. I'm not saying you went out of your way to remove her freckles; it's just that these filtering or gaussian methods for retouch remove detail and give a mushy skin look to photographs and in the process removes fine detail.
I wouldn't worry about what I think; You have your FM and FB legions who love your work and I'm sure 'the client loved it' as well, so to take offense at the "always one in the crowd" (..who didn't find your image perfect I guess?) seems silly. I will not dare to be the voice of dissention in your threads going forward.
