Hi!

This is my version:

Degrunge technique(ByRo)
Dodge and Burn
Hair retouch, and some curves, adjusting the contrast.

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

Here's my try,

adjustments:
levels
hue/sat
curves-eyes, hair, lips
tried to even skin
smoothed skin
high pass sharpen

Let me know what you think, am still learning and hoping to improve with each try.

newbie practising:

tweaked levels, col balance, saturation
removed tiny blemishes and smoothed (maybe a tad too much)
burn and dodge around the eyes and mouth

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

Something a bit different...

I warmed the colors up a bit using curves and color balance, burned it a bit and added a bit of contrast.

The uploaded image seems a bit dark, here's an outside link:

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

OK, here's my entry (before & after), based on your comment that you want a natural look with some 'pop'.

Increased the brightness of the whites of the eyes, the saturation of the irises and the lips, size and brightness of the specular highlights in the pupils, auto levels, photo filter 'warm' (81), unsharp mask.
