I also erase the eyes, bottom of the nose and lips from the blurred layer to give those features a higher level of sharpness. Anyway, there are dozens of techniques and opinions on this, others mileage may vary, but this is what I do.
Thanks Mark, I like your answer to this question. Now do you have a way of removing them from the photographer?
Well if said photog lives in a plastic bubble all his/her life and never goes out and experiences life, faces challenges, and has all deceisions made for them, that will prevent them...but who would really want that for their life
