I hope you do not mind that I cropped and touched up your foto. This is what I did:
  1. Cropped it by trying to put her eyes in the top third and left third of the crop area.[/*]
  2. Blured the background.[/*]
  3. Adjusted the range.[/*]
  4. Lightened up foto, specially her face and body.[/*]
  5. Removed the grain from her face and remove some skin blemishes.[/*]
  6. Removed Red-eye.
[/*]
Most of these tools are standard.

Not that Toro's wasn't spot-on, I went ahead and took a whack at this too.

I thought she fit the 4:3 format well, so I went with that. Toro's face was excellent, so I copied what he did. Then there's the background, which was a bit distracting, so I removed it.

What a gorgeous girl! Hope she likes the photo!

First thanks for the comments. I see the point.

I see that you used a different *crop* and seams to be the right I supose.

Only thing that I ask myself is the background. Should I keep the black one or to remain the same. And, about her face. I see that you did enough skin-face adjustment (maybe blur option), but this is something that I do not like too much...

While some other comments may appeared I will try to make something and send results.

Thanks, Zak

OK, one more try. Thsi time I was very judicious with my blur. I think that some is absolutely necessary since the JPEG compression ruins the face.
