It's hard to judge a small image like that. No doubt, it willl take quite a lot of work to get it right. I just made a change in the skintones. I used your corrected version, added an empty layer, painted with R253, G228, B200 on the skin only. Then I changed the mode to color. I think the skin needed to be warmed up a bit. As per the rest of the image, if you had another image to draw from, it might be easier to steal parts of it, rather than to try to make it yourself. We do have some artists on the site who could make it look authentic, but I'm not one of them. The other thing I noticed is that there seem to be clone tracks on top of the post. It would be better to clone from different parts of the post to add the top. Good luck.
