I am a bit out of practice so this one took be a bit longer then it might have in the past, good to get my feet we with again though.

I was going for a basic studio head shot look and a basic level of retouching.
1: I created a retouching layer.
2: I got rid of the ugly shadow and cleaned the hair line using the clone tool.
3: I use the patch tool to remove the bags under the eyes and the smile lines.
4: I used the history brush to put back in some of the detail under the eyes and the smile lines but leave them softer.
5: I dodged out the whites of the eyes, used the sponge tool to get rid of the red eye, burned in the pules of the eyes, used the history brush on multiply to outline the eyrerises and the edges of the eyes.
6: I did a small amount of color balancing
7: Selected the background and applied a little bit of a cloud filter to it.
8: Made a new layer with just the figure in it and put a more natural looking shadow behind it the merged it with the retouching layer.
9: I went back and did a small amount of sharpening to the eyes, whitened the teeth slightly, and fixed any other small problems. And done!!

I just wanted to do something pretty basic to get back in to the swing of things after not working with images much for a few years. I like how this one came out though.
