Is it too far?
It IS a fantastic portrait. Without a 'before' and not knowing the model, it's difficult to say whether you went too far.
However, IMHO it looks very natural and I would expect a young girl to have skin like that. I would be proud to have taken it (as would many people on this site I expect)
Looks natural to me. Do you mind sharing your technique?
I think it looks good
Looks soft and smooth but still has some skin texture to it. Looks great to me.
It looks good! I might add just a tiny bit of shadow back in around her nose though. Also (and it could be my monitor) I see a bit of a red/magenta color cast on her skin.
looks like an amazing photograph, the whites in her eyes seem too white which i think is also the reason that her pupils and eye lashes seem to dark
Don't reserve PS just for skin. Take care of the fly away hair too, and make sure that her eye colour shows up.
Thanks for the comments! I appreciate the tips as well.
For those who are curious here is the original for comparison.
I like you edit A LOT more than the original. I don't think it is "too far" I think it is flattering and nice. (and we women like that!)
Looks very good, I am curious to know your technique also.
good edit, very natural, would like to see you lighten her eyes a bit to bring out the colour...just a touch, i realize she has dark eyes....
