That's a bit scary.

Took it too far. Her head looks pasted on, skin is supersmooth and you overdid the lightening of her hand that looks pasted on as well. It's all a bit overdone.

The original picture was retouched enough. I think you made her too unrealistic and it came out really weird.
Stock photos alot of the time are already retouched. I started on images of myself, then of my friends to work with.

Thnx for your answers.

I'm gonna try on with some other Photos. Maybe i can find an "untouched" one to try that stuff. I'm gonna post my next try too. Hoping it's getting better ;-)

I like the illustrated style the image got from your retouch. Looking forward to see it on other images as well.
