My Older Woman Retouch

This is my photo to begin with (two flashed diffused with softboxes wirelessly fired).

Retouched it in high res and made it small to show online.

Looks way overdone to me. The character is gone from her face. Hair is generally nicely done, though the extension at the back of her neck is unnecessary. My stylist would never cut it that way.

Re: My Older Woman Retouch

Terrific job, provided the subject wants to look 20 years younger.
Skin looks a bit plastic, might want to consider a touch of texture/noise.
I agree with Lurch on the addition of the hair extension, looks a bit contrived.
Is that a shadow you added at the back of her neck or an extension of the hair?
