Re: I thought this was going to be easy...

Beautiful model and nice photograph. Now down to the little nits.

- I think the hair part is done a little heavy. I re-did in my attachment.
- The contrast in the "after" face is a little harsh for my taste. I lowered the highlights of the forehead. noise and cheeks and reduced the shadows on the sides of her face. I think the original is about right for the tone of the face.
- Levels to boost the color intensity a little. I think your "after" is just right.
- Used Dodge tool to lighten the highlights of her eyes
- Slight increase in the color saturation of her lips and matched the Hue to her blouse color.
- Used the Dodge tool to bring out the highlights in her hair.

Re: I thought this was going to be easy...

Thank you for your feedback, Jason ... and glad we could be of help.

Beautiful girl, great picture.. great photographer ..

Fashion/glamour retouching isn't really my cup of tea so take my comments with a grain of salt ...
I love the changes you have made to the colours of background and of the top the girl is wearing.. I think her skin is a tad oversaturated (a bit too much yellow).. and quoting duwayne "The contrast in the "after" face is a little harsh for my taste" too.
