Is this water damage? How to remove it?

Is there a better way than spot healing/rubber stamping down in the bottom right?

First image is just zoomed into the damage.

Where to go next?

I thought I did a pretty good job here. Is there anything that I am missing that could make this photo better? Pretty much I can cover what is in the basic restoration tutorial and a little bit more, but after that I am stuck. Any help appreciated.

Here is my before and after. Tips, guidance, anything??

Re: Where to go next?

Cannot be sure as at the moment I am viewing on a laptop with a poor screen but it looks like you did a good job. I think it may be improved by warming the skin tones just a little (contrast looks fine so no change) by using curves layer with a gentle touch to get a little yellow in there.

EDIT: Just looked at it again (on a proper monitor!) I was wrong I do not think it needs any colour change in the direction I suggested above

this doesnt look too difficult. i think i'd use a bit of clone and a bit of airbrushing. just use a small brush on blank layers. do the cloning on one and the airbrushing on another.
