Listened to your guys' advice (2nd retouch)

Hello,

So about two weeks ago I posted my first retouch ever trying to use "professional" techniques. Some of the feedback I received was to not focus so much on techniques per say, but to really focus on the basic and that was "good ol' doge and burn."

So this is my 2nd retouch attempt and taking in your guys' advice (thank you, tons) I practiced more heavily on dodge and burn and took focus off of "techniques." So I hope I am going in the right direction.

I really like the spot cleaning of her cheek. Looks natural and not treated. I see a few spots on her lip, but that could be intentional. I'm not getting warm and fuzzies about the glare on her hair. It looks kind of flat, but again, that may be intentional. Hair is usually glossy when light hits it like that, so maybe brush in some contrast to the top highlight. Also, check the color of her neck and shoulder skin tones. It's greening a bit compared to the nice tones you have in her face.
