In my opinion, it doesn't look like the same person int either image, and most of the time, thats not what you're looking for.

I don't think the pose is very flattering for her or indeed the retouch, there's way too much lens blur and the teeth are a bit yellow imho,
regards,
Gary

Thanks for the encouragement OlBaldy , i see what Gary means by the blur i think i probably overdid things a bit with neatimage on the face.I,m still very new to this game but with the help of the regulars on here am learning fast.

I took your comment on board austin and reworked this a bit ,i went overboard with the smoothing before , i think she looks more like herself now.

Re: First major retouch attempt

looks much better as you have left some detail on the face but great job as the image is not the best picture to work with.
