    To be honest, I like your first go at it. Maybe turn down the saturation a tad, but not too much. As for the slight blur and glow its nice, but the tatoo on her arm would look better if it wasnt blurred. :dunno:

    I've noticed a lot of people will over board with the air brush. It looks really unnatural. It's ok to remove blemishes and soften wrinkles, but you need to know how to do it. The healing brush tool works great, because it helps keep the texture of the face, instead of turning into a big smear of goo. And instead of a circle, use a roundness of about 25%.

    My attempt

    Somewhere, out there, this girl is at a party or sleeping in her bed, or ordering a late night pizza on this wonderful saturday night. And she has no idea dozens of people are putting her through their photoshop.

    I like yours tomash, but a bit sharp / bit too much contrast I think. I love smooth skin, not natural skin ;)
