Hello I would appreciate if somebody could give me some critique/tips on this photo i have retouched:

Re: Critique on this photo

The photo looks good, my only concern is that I don't get the "retro" effect... the soft part is subtle (which is not a bad thing, since it looks natural), but it does not places the photo in any retro mood... if you wanted it to look more 70's or 80's, maybe make up (in the era style) and more distinctive outfit could help... and pull back the camera to show "more"... hope that helps

Thanks for the replies. Peregrina: i thought i got av retro feeling by the way i`ve used curves adding som red and green in the highlights, and some cyan in the shadow. Then I have a solid color layer with a light pink on 5% opacity. But i didn`t use any "retro" recepie So it is just retro in my subjective(clueless) opinion. But i`ve got to work more on that retro look.
Djslyda. Thanks-glad you liked it.
More opinions on what i can improve are welcome
