Luiz,

Your work is lovely! Just what's this line on the right cheek. Is that meant to define the right "cheek bone" Ie maxilla?

It is a earring shadow from one of the kickers, sorry guys, didn't see it till later!

Luiz,
First of all, great job!

I really like the background, where did you get it and what was your tech for applying it?
 
Thanks, the background is my and you are free to use, just set the BG layer to luminosity
and opacity to 40-50% and mask it or place an extracted girl above the BG layer, the BG is
black to white and when mixed with the original white BG turn grey and as it is not 100 opaque
there will be some fly hairs given an impression that the extraction was 100% perfect :)

Here 2 files, my background + the full size image

A less aggressive PS version with no ring shadow.

First, that's a beautiful subject! What great colors to work with in a photograph! I love the balance of the picture now. It is very smoothing, and very eye-catching. I would love to start manipulating family portraits like this.

Update! I took this picture and played with it on my sister's computer rig (she's a wedding photographer like my father). I was able to do some cool retouching and recoloring! As soon as I get back to my sister's place I'll upload my picture. I don't think it will be as good as what's been done above me, but I would love some comments!
