bit of dodging and burning
overall sharpen
added a highlight to the hair

and some other things
took me about half an hour

anyone want to critique?











edit: i left the hairs in at the sides because without them the photo looked "overly photoshopped" i think it looks better with them there.
i think over-all it looks good, the only thing that freaks me out is that her left eye is covered with hair, thats why in the picture i retouched i've got rid of that!

for the skin i used d&b and when i couldnt do more for her, i used surface blur with low opacity like 30%...
