I am always surprised by advertising in photography periodicals for software, and overnight services, that retouch portraits, including not just blemish removal, but something more akin to a Botox after a major plastic surgery. What surprises me in those ads is that a pretty and a kind face, usually a handsome lady, is always turned by the advertised product into a soulless plastic doll, rather than just a subtly improved face.

I suppose people want this.
