I'm no professional so take what I say with a grain of salt.

I liked that you removed the boot and the curve of the dress strap. That helped remove distraction from her face.

The shadow on her arm, how did you remove that? It looks like you used the stamp tool. If so, did you try curves? I have seen some magic done with just lightening the shadow right on the arm and not messing with the pixels themselves.

Anyway, good job. I think the only other thing I would have done was to remove the upper stone in the background. It seems to draw my eyes away from her.

Cheers!

Terrific job of the face transformation. Look at it carefully as I think you have gone a bit too far on the face color. It tends to come off very warm and the rest of the body and dress are a much cooler tone--makes it look a bit artificial.

I think it's one of my weakness, color correction...I will lower down a bit.
My aim was to fake a sort of sun beam around the face and arm, I admit it's too much.Thank you!
