Exclamation Retouching Critique (Studio and On-Location)

Hey everyone,

I thought I would some feedback on my retouching technique as I haven't had any real critiques from anyone who actually does retouching. I am self taught (both in photography and retouching) but I have learn a lot from using a lot of web resources and sheer practice. Its still nice to have some constructive criticism since I believe there is always room for improvement and growth so I decided to use two shots that I took to show my studio retouching and on-location retouching. Shots are also taken by me but that's besides the point :P.

Studio sample:

On-Location Sample:

Any input is greatly appreciated!

The problem with setting your own brief is that it doesn't test you. Applying whacky curves is fun and nice things happen but 'real world' jobs usually entail a few nasties like sorting out creases, extracting more detail from shadows or adding new elements to the scene. Work on the details Moose, instead of the global stuff, to improve your skills.

Good job Moose, I like it, would like to hear on the process behind it.
Only thing I would complain about is the two lights on the background, they kinda break the composition and are a bit distracting.
