I saw some of the covers and the women look gorgeous. I however have not experienced this phenomenon of bigger boobs. Where do I sign up? (and I refuse to walk around with the ocean in my bra)

That's awesome. Yes, lighting and quite a variety of factors (angles, for example) affect the way a subject looks in a photo; there is no such thing as an objective photograph. But retouching (the kind of retouching that seems to be standard nowadays, meaning not just fixing a few blemishes but turning the subject into Barbie) takes it to a whole different level, where the subject is manipulated to the point of looking unreal. I would much rather see photographs of celebrities in which they look like human beings, even if the photo has been taken in such a way to enhance their features. I am thrilled that Elle France is doing this. Great publicity for them and a great statement.

The photos weren't retouched at all, but you're right. Good lighting does wonders for people. Still, I love the idea!

I like the idea but ... what about lighting? Or other software programs not called Photoshop?
