Wow. Nobody has contributed an effort since my last Dot in December. So now you have to suffer thru another one of mine. Did some intitial rough cleanup of face with patch tool, then heavy Gaussian Blur then Alt Mask and painted back blur at medium opacity on skin only. Ligtened eyes slightly and cleaned up. Added a bit of shadow detail to bring out the nose and cheeks. I think I like this better than my first effort. Spattered the background to draw more attention to the face. Finally, slight curves adjustment.

My only comment on this one vs your last one is that there is a strong texture throughout the image but on her face it's a soft blur. I would add some grain to her face a bit to match the rest of the image. Overall you do very nice work. Sorry if your challenges sometimes get missed. With so many images being posted in the challenges it's easy to sometimes miss ones but that doesn't reflect on your work at all. Keep em coming. :]
