I have been retouching for about 2 years,
I did it the wrong way starting out, and
learned another way.

I HAVE NOT YET started with the dodge and
burn technique for improving the skin, but here
is one I finished recently.

Before:

After:
yyy

Update: August 20, 2013 -

I gave High End Retouching a shot.

the photo had a very painterly feel from the start. I like the image,
I do think you've gone a little overboard on the green foliage and water.
Those areas are so saturated that it takes attention from the subjects.
keep practicing, I'd like to see more along that style

I see what you're saying now,
I will tone down the background next time.

Thank you.

Decent, but start with a better image.
