      Can you tell us the steps you took to get your final image?

        I think you did a good job of it.
        You made it hard on yourself with the uneven lighting. If you had used the light more to the back I think it would have been easier. You still have a shadow and a line at her left eye...I would probably work to minimize those.

          Mostly Lightroom, although I used GIMP in a later version of this edit to clone out some of those wisps of hair, content-aware style. In LR, I warmed up the image, brightened the whites of her eyes, brought up the saturation, clarity and exposure in her pupils, softened her skin with a clarity brush (auto-mask, set to -75% or so). Let's see, what else? Did some spot-healing for blemishes, and warmed up the overall WB and brought up the exposure level just a bit. BTW, this was lit entirely with late afternoon sunlight and some poster board that I bought at the dollar store. However, just yesterday, I invested in a big-boy collapsible reflector.

            Nicely done!

            I will offer one critical comment though. Why didnt you touch the dark bags under her eyes? The portrait would look much better IMO

                i think you did a top job. if you retouched too much more of the eyes it would be too perfect. you kept her human and natural looking i like ti

                  Very nice job -- not overdone -- still looks very natural, while being much improved. My only suggestion would be to "spot-heal" the somewhat distracting reflected glints of light off the strands of hair on the right side. You also might try either a closer top crop, or darken the blue sky.

                    "After" looks really great. I like the highlighted face and the skin of that girl. This is what makes picture really beautiful

                        But then there wouldn't be any of the golden light hitting her face which is what this portrait has going for it, IMO.

                          Its a decent job.

                          I'm quite new to photography, so might not be able to give you a better suggestion than experts. But it seems quite good to me!

                          As I was telling in my other post there currently i'm online from my friend's PC, otherwise I would have shared some of my photographs as well.
