Take a look at this version of your WIP and see what you think. If you flip my version on and off over your own, I think you'll see (other than a bit more contrast overall) areas around the lip, eyes and nose where there were some rough patches. Also a couple on the buttons.



I'm not all that fond of the background (I didn't touch that at all) - I think it needs a bit less texture and a bit more blur. There's a bit of the grainy texture where hair meets background that could use a little softening

Nice work Lynn. Wondering if the lighter area on her forehead is a remnant of the damage? See what you think.

Nice catch Shadow!
Lynn, there is one small thing (in your otherwise beautiful restore) that jumps out at me: a little pluck of hair missing on the back of her head (left) where the grainy white damage streak runs.
