I do like the original photograph, it's a very nice shot.

What I did not like is the background, just a little to nervous.. and the red of the flowsers is way to intensive.

The steps I took:
- Cropped the picture a little
- blurred and darkened background
- removed 2 spots in the face using the repair stamp
- removed saturation by 60 using a layer mask (made almost a black&white picture), removed the girl from the mask

I like your crop, I love your retouch of the girl (except the headband needs a touchup), I like the color change on the roses. I agree with you about the background (didn't notice it in my version until I looked at others), but I'm not sure that such a dark background is the best solution either (?). It does work at bringing the emphasis back to her lovely face.

Really nice job. I do like the darker background.
