Thanks much! Points noted.

here's my own try. I played around with a "metallic finish" after I was done with the retouching.

No blurring involved! Do give yr comments. Thnks!

Hi Sunniee,

I like the color tone treatment you gave to the photo. Can share? I tried using solid color adjustment but could not really get yr tone.

I'm talking about reducing noise and artifacts. That's exactly why I mentioned re-applying texture. I agree with the do not blur skin if you're just using one of the blur filters in your photo editing software. You lose tonality and complexity if you're blurring an entire face full of skin and that's a big no no.

Hi eveypd! Not too bad. I would try and adjust the colors, there's something weird going on there. Also, his entire left side is way too dark. Welcome to the site.
