Smile retouched image

I have just started to learn how to retouch images and would like you thoughts on what i have done.
This fourm is a good place to start as its dedicateded to this sort of thing.
I retoucted this image which took about 45 mins. The places i have retouched is as follows. Skin, waist, eyes, lips, eye browes, skin tone and all over exsposure.
I would like some feed back as I would like to learn more on retouching and as there are lots of you experts here feel that i need to start here..
Regards frank williams.

Dunno, cant really help you out with that sorta thing, but I must say, she has got some look like she really wants to get down with that bottle of wine and that huge loaf of bread. Whats her story? Is she single?

Re: retouched image

Looks pretty good to me. Hard to tell with such a small pic. I did notice that her left collar is washed out and some stray hairs on her forehead where the hair parts and at the back of her neck on her left side. Like I said, kinda hard to tell on such a small pic.
Kind of an odd composition with the computer in the background and a grill in the kitchen or a pot in the sink?

garibaldi!! ROFLMAO!!

I see that her skin is softned a bit. Since the photo is small, I cannot tell which method the OP used but I use surface blur often unless I am retouching a close up. Also, there is a little something, possibly blood dripping above her left breast. Not sure what that is; again small photo. The OP removed that too. I can see the photo is a little brighter exposed too. The one thing that throws me off is the subject's blue eyes. I think the OP may have over done it here. They look a little to unrealistic; almost too painted. Probably, they look fine when zoomed in or at the original size of the photo but way too saturated for that small size photo.

Just my 2 coppers.

Re: retouched image

Thanks for the comments. I thought i wood mention that the eyes are contact lenes and i had to tone down the eyes as were way to much. I personaly did not like the contacts as i thought they did not match her look, but thats what she wanted.
I will be buting some of the finished images on my site soon but am unable to at this moment as the person i photographed has not had them yet and it would not be right to let other people see them until she has had the finished images.
Thanks for the comments thou.
Frank williams
