Looks as good as a lot of work I have seen from portrait studios. Good job. The only thing I would change would be to whiten her teeth a bit. The contrast with your white shirt makes them look too yellow.

Hope you are okey with some constructive criticism.

And hope I get the english right

I think the laying bare looks really unnatural. I think you have to work on that.
I also think the whole picture (your faces), looks out of focus or blurry. I think you should try to work on an image that is good from the beginning. Reshoot the image and try to get your faces as sharp as you can.

Best regards/Daniel

I would say that the incandescent lighting gave a bit of color cast to the photo, but the exposure was just high enough to render your shirt as white. That left the yellow cast in the rest of the picture. This often helps with skin tones, but in the case of eyes and teeth, you may need to do some additional work.
A bit of softness in portraits is not necessarily a bad thing. It depends on the circumstances. Here, where a romantic mood is being portrayed, it works.
Very cute gf, BTW.

In sampling the skin tones in the before and after version most of the colour problems seem to be self induced in the second image.
In the first image the magenta content of the skin is a little low compared to the yellow, but in the second image the yellow content goes way too high.
Not sure what your workflow was in your pp of the second image but something to be aware of.
I like the image , very pretty g/f.
