I think you've done a very good job bringing out the best in her yet not overdoing the skin. The skin tone is quite different but seems to be well within realistic values for African-American which of course can have a wider range than any other. The only thing I noticed was a slight discoloration of the hair at the background on her right side.

Cheers
Dave

Looks good, the only thing that I'd do different is a gradient on the background.

Very Good!

The color on the before was way off, you did a good job. My taste is slightly darker, but of course it could be just the difference in our monitors

I hope you don't mind, I played with it a little. Often I don't get a real good opinion of an image until I have played with it a little ...

I found a spot where the new background shows through her shoulder - I circled it - and under her hair as allready mentioned....

The other thing I did was straightened her back and reduced the shoulder a little - hid the bra strap. If you like it and you need help in how to do this, just ask - but be sure to mention which software you are using.

have fun,
Roger

I too think you've done a fantastic job. The only suggestion I can offer is to make sure that the skin tone is as acurate as possible while retaining a pleasing blend of highlights and shadows.
Best,
Larry
