Did I overdo it?

Hi everyone,

I've read about a new technique in Photoshop and edited an old portrait of a friend of mine. I spend some time editing it, which makes me wonder if I overdid it.

What do you seen and think? :D

Thanks!

Thanks!

How does this look? I see now that I need to remove just a little more of the green on the top of the head.
Just above the hair.

WEll if it were me, I'd carefully select all the hair with the magic wand and adjust properly. It's not so much the background but green tints in the hair aren't very appealing.

Better than I could do in PS. Eyes look too white. Not sure how you would correct that.

Yah, just the green in the hair looks off. Otherwise I like it!

Thanks for your comments. Can't really do a lot anymore with the eyes...
How's this?

if a green hue was what you were going for (which I tend to like) you nailed it. I think it's a pretty nice shot. You could use a little depth in her face, but other then that I dig it.
