I'm really trying to find help on retouching photos and my goal is to become a high end expert, but help is really hard to find!!! Please help I'll even pay for it, is there a school or some books or anything at all will be helpful.

Re: newbie my very first retouch

I think it looks Great, The people on here can sometimes be asses and rip you apart but i cant see exactly what it is they could possibly say.
I too have issues finding hi-res photos to retouch, especially with ethnic people, retouching the same skin tone is begining to get very boring, heres some model portraits that you can play around with though:

I ain't professional (yet), but I like your retouch. Nice skin tones =)

The only thing I must complain is that you kinda blow some detalis trying to clean her face. Take a look at some parts of her left cheek, near the nose. I'ts blured there.

You could also have cleaned a little bit the eyes.

I understand that therefore sometimes I take the photos that I edit. I actually took that one.

Degrunge tech.

I've never tried that on a body, but, since face's skin is different from body's skin you should keep degrunge only for faces. Or, you could only do the dodge and burn, takes time but you can archieve good results. =)
