First Timer

This is my first contest entry, and my first post. I don't expect to win, I just thought it would be fun to contribute for a change. I really enjoy this website, and I have been learning a lot (I am new to retouching). I tried to Keep the photo as close to normal as possible. Any constructive criticism is welcome.

Face of the girl was a little bit distorted on the original because of lower shooting point, so, I made some correction - reduced chin area and enlarged a little bit a forehead, so the face become nicer and more natural. After I did dodge/burn smoothing, hair painting and final tonal adjustment.

Here is my effort. Usual clean up with heal and clone brushes, evened out the complexion with a gausian blurred copy layer. I smoothed out the lips and very slightly increased the colour saturation of the lips and eyes using the original colour tones. Slightly enlarged the highlights on the pupils. Faded the lines at the chin and throat and put a little shadow at the sides of the throat to narrow the neck. Warmed the skintone slightly. Added some hair at the left side of the centre parting and temple to even things out. I decided to keep the shadow on the wall with small adjustments. Darkened very slightly the upper corners of the background to intensify the "on camera flash" look.

She's a lovely young lady. I can't wear yellow either, HA! Just thought a natural background (My mother's house) and the angles would show off her naturally lovely attributes.

It was fun! Thanks!

As natural as possible...

...did some basic color correction, skin smoothing, eliminated shine on face, added some subtle blush and lip color, fixed shape of hair and filled in some uneven spots.
