Skin...what do you think..

I have been working on skin tones of late and came across this before/after by a local retoucher - I think the level of smoothing is very good but would like to know what you guys think the process might have been and what you think of the retouch..

Impossible to tell at this size. But don't worry, you can do that, that was easy skin. Just when you do it, don't let the neck be that much brighter than the face

A little oversmoothed to me, but maybe that's what you're going for.

Looking at the original it looks to me as though there was not that much texture in the first place, so not easy to judge.

Not sure what it is but it looks to me like the second was made in Poser. I'm with flexmanta, I'd like to see them larger.

Hi. Too much blur. Needs more texture. Watch the difference between lips and skin in texture. It's unreal.

Synthetic skin texture!
The next step in retouching is bringing back dirt to the (even by nature) perfect surfaces.
