    Nice one. Highlights on the face are just a bit hot, but most of what I didn't like from the original is fixed with this version.

    When in doubt, take the color out!

    I am not digging the very softened look personally. This is a stunning photo I love it!... My takes... (for my own practice/tastes really.) .... EDIT! Just realised I wasn't working with the full sized image that you provided a link too DOH

    I like the photo but I have never been a fan of the really softened faces but that is just my preferance. So anyway, here is my attemt.

    I took a different approach and painted in lots of light in LR3, then into Portrait Pro 11 to give her Barbie porcelain skin, then into PSE8 to put the original skin back at about 35% opacity. I then played with the levels, upped the saturation a tad and tidied up a few stray hairs. Then corrected the background (all that fooling round had turned it brown/purple) back to black and burned the pupils of her eyes a little.

    I was aiming for a "movie medieval princess look" (which is what it said to me, probably inspired by her awesome hair).
