I think you need to tread carefully & not over do it as she looks too intelligent to be fooled or taken in by too much of that
OK Eliot. you have crossed the Uncanny Valley, but in reverse. She wasn't this smooth when she was 18. Someone tell me if I'm wrong. I'd say split the difference between this one and your earlier ones. This stuff is a lot trickier than I ever thought. I think I'll try one more before dinner.
She is a really lovely lady. For that reason, I would keep the post processing as simple looking as possible, so that the attention is on the bride and not on the artistry of the post processing. Here is how I would do it:
This is what I did:
1. Touched up expression lines and skin blemishes with the spot healing brush.
2. Softened the skin texture with the Dynamic Skin Softener filter in Color Efex 4.0.
3. Removed some shiny bits in the forehead using the clone stamp tool (sampling from non-shiny parts, with the opacity set at a very low level).
4. Removed white spots from the teeth.
5. Converted to B&W using Silver Efex Pro 2.0
6. Using a duplicate layer and a mask, slightly brightened the eyes.
7. Tweaked overall contrast with a curves adjustment layer.
