That's always quite subjective. It just depends on what you were trying to achieve. We can only critique less subjective parts of the image, i.e. individual features, left over blemishes, tell tale signs of repair, etc. To most of us, the image looks quite bright, like an over exposure. But, if that's what you wanted, or needed to portray, then it's fine. What you did around the eyes, mouth, hair all looks fine. However, it's always hard to critique a GIF, easier if the before and after were separate files.
