I like to keep my fixes looking "real" even with a zoom. I want my retouching not to be visible at all. I do not favor the over all texture filter to hide blurry skin tones. That is the easy way out. I spent about 20 minutes on this but if this was a paying job I would really clean her skin tones to match the texture of her face. But over all I think it turned out OK.

Your fixes do look "real". Well done. So what technique did you use to eliminate the sunlight? Dodge, burn, layers, healing brush, clone....give us a few hints

Thanks I am new here and I have found this to be a great place to practice.
I used a cobination of all of the tools. The key though for me is layers and stacking them with different opacity's and blending. There is still a "blurry" ring with this image where I fixed stuff but that is because the original lossy jpeg wasnt as clear as I would have liked. The new healing brush is a great tool but it takes a lot of practice. I hope to get better as we go. And dont under estimate the sharpen tool to clean up your blurry clone tool.

You did a nice job on removing the sun spots. The overall picture looks nice.
