this is a very good first attempt for sure.. i take it you were going for a high-key effect on the skin? i might like to see a version where the skinis a little less "hot" for comparison... still, i like this one, she is quite beautiful..

I think its a fantastic shot. The pose is nice as well as the angle of the shot.

I used a combination of clone, smudge, burn and dodge. I used clone to get rid of the smaller dark areas. Then I smudged the whole cheek area to blend the darks and lights a bit. Then used burn and dodge to balance the highlights and shadows a bit.

Very nice shot. Lots of appeal, beautiful girl, just the right amount of detail. If she were less photogenic, I'd find the black and white background behind her arm distracting. I know it sounds chauvinistic. My typical male outlook competes and tends to supress my recognition of the technical merit here. Still, the pose is very natural looking and her expression compliments the pose. All in all the shot is a home run for sure. Best regards,
