Did I do a good job? Is it to much?

I think some contouring would make this picture a lot better!
I would also work a little more on her body (from the neck down).

Hmmm... I'm not loving those eyes; her right eye is too bright even though it's on a shadow.

Hope that helps!
Good luck!

It's not a flattering image composition/technically speaking...Personally I would ditch it and start over.

The exposure is very hot on the arms etc...fly away hairs, poor posing..

As someone already pointed out, her right eye just stands out for the bad. Start over with a better exposed shot. Probably should use a longer lens as well.

Th texture of the hair is quite good.

Needs more work. Use the high end retouch method. Example below

MMP,

The eye in the shadow is just to PS lit. The stray hairs, well you have to do it 100% either keep em or loose them, Not sure if the thing that is coming out of her top on her back should stay, looks like a shoe horn. Overall it's okay, but lacks character. When you have such brilliant colour, you have to push for a balance , a play on soft hard, bright dark , saturated, desat, etc to make it work.

Ex of lots of clr http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/100402/06/4bb5f29c25522_m.jpg
