Re: I'm cuckoo for critiques!
I hardly feel in a position to criticise being fairly new to this all myself, however, I think you did a really good job and deserve praise. I like the way you brightened up the skin tones and the photo in general. You did an excellent job removing the wrinkles on the shirt, cleaning up the hair on the neck and removing the vein on the arm. Ditto for adding the extra smoke. You also brightened up the eyes so that they look more open and made the lips rosier. The only area that I think you, perhaps, neglected, and which stuck out for me immediately was the hand holding the cigarette. It looks nicotine stained or dirty. I would do something about that. It seems to clash with her otherwise perfect skin. But maybe you left that for a reason.
