Hi!
Please critique this retouch: http://aleksandrolkhovskiy.com/beautyreteouch732.html
Is there anything I could do to improve this image further?
Global d&b and overall what you think retouch looks good or not?
edit: I'm going crazy, what looks better - before/after or this?

I did as last link first, then something happened to me and I did that global d7b staff, now looking at it day after not sure anymore.

Thanks.

I think the work that's done is very good and anything more (or less)
is just a matter of taste and preference. Is this what you had in mind
when you started the image?

She has problematic neck, very strange-looking... I can't explain it in English, so I'll switch to Russian as the topic starter understands it... Шея выглядит странно очень, как будто она растворяется внезапно и при этом "ворсистая" или потрепанно-рваная с темного края. Плюс бровь ближняя бросается в глаза (косые волоски).

Thank you!. I will adjust this.

A little more falloff on the neck. More neck in short. I could be picky (but won't be) the rest looks good.

Impressive. The corner of lip...small patch of skin unlike rest. Barely noticeable but no biggie really.

The shadow under her bottom lip seems to stand out a lot at a first glance. I think it could use some brightening, but otherwise a great retouch smile

Можно было бы немного тень у крыла носа ослабить, тень в уголке губ и над ней.
Кожа очень красивая получилась и цвет нравится)

Nicely done! I would work a bit more on those hairs in the forehead, but you did an excellent job!

Волосы на лбу, брови дорисовать, ресницы поправить, шею - откусил и не сгладил, сгладить цвет. Вроде все.
