what "professional editing" means to me

Some photographers dread the editing work, especially after an all day shoot like a wedding.  But to me, there's an art to editing and I enjoy it almost as much as I like taking the photos.

I make sure and edit out background clutter.  In the pic below I removed a set of blinds and did some skin smoothing:

 

 

 

 

Here I did skin smoothing and teeth & eye whitening:

 

Here's another example of adding light and skin smoothing:

This was a photo with horrible lighting and fill-flash to get some light.  The subjects skin does not look like this in person.  It was the lighting that showed every pore and skin shine.  I did the usual skin smoothing and even added an eyebrow ring!
