I did gaussian blur, and that helped, but was not enough. The background, as is, looks like someone hung up a well sleeped on sheet.

Mind you, I actually like this shot, and the way the model is lit. It is certainly worth a bit more post processing.

Cool !!!

-> I did a quick change in the background as suggested, may be the orton effect will turn out even better:

I went other way, just to give it a try (softening the textures, lessening the contrasts). BTW: the girl is beautiful but looks somewhat bored, or... i don't know, distracted.

Personally I dont mind the original background expect the wrinkles. The edited backgrounds look added in and you lose sense of any depth. The effect looks over processed to me as well. If your original shot didnt have the wrinkles in the fabric, was cropped like your second post, or not, and was bit softer, like Ordos edit, I think it would be just fine.

Thank you for the commentss
Does anybody know how to "iron" out a background in Photoshop?

Regarding the contrast, on my monitor which is calibrated, the edited image looks kind of washout so it may depend on the individual settings...

i have just run the original image through topaz adjust via photoshop elements by just selecting the background and using the smooth and flat settings kinda works but i went too far and dropped the saturation too

maybe you could try topaz adjust? i just selected the background with the magic wand thingy
