The eyes and composition is excellent, magnetic, lovely.

However, too much airbrushing loses personality of the face that are important elements of a portrait.

I agree artcubis. I was faced with a few problems in this photo that I just cant resolve. The original picture had this yellowness on her right side face (our left side) that i just couldn't remove. Its still there but not as much. You can still see it and its really bugging me.

Thing i love about this shot is the 3d depth it has. Took me a long time to achieve this. This is far removed from the normal fantasy type themes im more known to work on. Smile Results are getting good though, thanks for the feedback people!

Lovely portrait mapper - that yellow/green toning was my distraction moreso than any retouch work.
I just had a quick play with a selective colour layer in ps, and using the yellow option, set cyan to -30, magenta to +40, yellow to -25, and black to -25, you will get something with a lot less noticeable yellow.
More tweaking will probably yield something better...
Hope this helps.

arhb, Thanks for the help, im playing around with your values and trying it, still having issues. i want to keep the same image color/tone. Ive never come across this problem before. The yellowness is there big time in the original shot.

Its like the dark color shadow values for that side turned yellowish from a reflection or something. Im not familiar with the photography world, i just try work on end stuff like this. Its all new to me... sorry.
