First retouch-post!

Well, I guess it's time for me to make my first retouch-post here in the forum!
I hope this is the right place to post this, I'm still newbie and I haven't got the hang of everything here yet.

But I've been working with photoshop for a year or so and I use it pretty much everyday. So here is a picture I retouched today ^^,

Hope you like it, please tell me if there is something I can practice on so I could improve my photos in the future.

The original:

Ooh and btw, this is a stock photo from DeviantArt

Re: First retouch-post!

I think it looks good and it appears you accomplished what you wanted..

Just a few minor points... It looks like you just stopped healing/cloning at the bridge of the nose and the right side of the face near the edge. Also, I would have lightened the hair to make it stand out and cleaned up the lower parts of the picture getting rid of the fly away stray hairs, blemishes, and marks around her shoulders and neck.

I did check out your work at Deviantart.. and was very impressed!
You have a very good Photographers Eye.. Excellent compositions! Keep up the good work!

It would be nice if you post a less than 100K picture here so we could click a thumbnail preview and wouldn't have to go off site to evaluate your retouch work. That would also insure that in 5 years from now your work would be still viewable even though the link to it off site may have disappeared.
