You're right Cass. Sloppy work. Done in a rush and not much attention to detail. Apart from desaturating a bit (which worked against it and brought out that blue you are talking about on the shoulder) and moving the green curve, I did no other colour work. I appreciate your comment.

Sincerely Syd

with adjusting a bit the color-layer.

cs with shadow and highlight is a must have.

I suppose your friend gets tired of being told she bears an eerie resemblance to the actress Jennifer Morrison.

KR1156, I like your work.

Here is my version.

-Adjusted light
-Burn/Dodged the skin to even it out
-Burn/Dodged shadows/highlights
-Added a bit of noise

I probably should have softened up the hair...

Re: New and need ideas/help retouching this photo!

Here's my take. Not a pro - just a hobby.

thing to consider -
- darkened eyes with Hue/Saturation layer
- Add color to lips
- Used dodge tool to bring out highlights in her hair
- burn tool on the eyebrows
- quick de-grunge process on the skin.
- improved background lighting

Thanks Chillin. I didn't match the colour of the arm to the skin though.

I like the way you gave the photo a nice open feel and the way the skin almost seems to glow.

I like tsg's submission too. Nice and natural with good colour.

Sincerely Syd
