I would not make the pic darker or increase contrast but rather darken shadows slightly and also a slight color adjustment, slight sharpen and work on her skin a bit like aladyforty said. this is a quick idea of what I mean, but this was a quality pic to start with so only slight changes should be done if any. Also, if you are ging for some impressionistic effect, there is no limit to what you can do with photoshop's blending modes and certain filters to mimick camera filters.

AMG,



Thank you so much for you suggestions. Your editing looks superb. I'm just learning Photoshop so I will use your pic as a standard. Could you give me a little more help by elaborating on how you touched up her skin, and adjusted the background?



Thank you,

Chris

well, I didn't adjust the background, I just adjusted the tonal range on the image which is something you can do in levels or curves. You will have to practice both until you understand how they work. Then, the color was adjusted which can be done in so many ways, but for you for now, use the adjust colorbalance. It allows you to control color separately from shadows areas, midtones and highlights, so that is enoughcontrol to get results. For sharpening, use the unsharp mask filter. The first is the percentage of sharpening, the second isthe radius which you never want too highand the third is threshhold which allows you have the sharpening only affect higher contrast areas, in other words, not sharpen the grain in a photo or other areas you don't want sharpened. That tool needs practice as well. To remove blemishes or other imperfections, the healing brush is a great tool, does not require to much practice, but you need to play with it to understand how it works. it isn't one step, you need to do it slowly bit by bit

Good picture and well edited, AMG!

aladyforty: I can only guess, because I got the german version of Adobe Photoshop. but I think the tool AMG means is this one:
