Nice work Christopher,

There's a slight darkening along the chin and jawline that doesn't quite look right, otherwise excellent.

I particularly like the work on her eyes, although there's an amber coloured patch to the outer edge of her right iris (as we look at it) that distracts a little.

Thanks Gary...

Thank you Gary. I really have to be a little more detail oriented I think. But I really thank you for your critic! Its helps to get another persons perspective on things. Thanks again.
Chris

I'd personally sharpen the image up quite a bit, as to me it looks overall blurry, but good

Thanks Cassidy...

I tried that some but I felt it made the skin look overdone. Tried to keep it softer. But I will give your suggestion a go and see what I come up with. Thanks!

Two methods you can try, copy the final image and then select filter->other->highpass and adjust to the point where the finer details are obvious and then set that layer to overlay, else, Image->Mode, Lab (do not flatten) and select the lightness layer and run the unsharp mask on that

Found on the res you posted a highpass of 3.3 does an adequate job and then you can mask if you wish to retain the softer non detail
