Total Newbie with a lot to learn.  Would appreciate any advice on how to improve these images.

Wow! You really picked an easy one, NOT! I think you have done a great job so far. I think on your left I would have her hair flip up like it is on your right and not have it go off the page. I also wonder if you might darken her gown as I would think it would match her cap. At first when I downloaded your 3rd photo that there was a lot of added noise, but considering the shape the original was in; I think you made the right decision. You might try to add a little more definition around her mouth.

Thank you M.  I colored the gown and added to the lips.  I played with the hair but did not want to get too close to the tassel.  Hope this is an improvement. :-\

Something I do when I get a good tip like Kiska's - download their example and then overlay it on my work to see the difference. Might be worth a go?

Kiska, I played around with curves and levels an although the shape of the mouth was more defined I could not get a result as good as yours so I added your mouth which definitely looks more natural.  What do you think?

This is the original mouth over the restore. Tried to lighten parts of the skin. What's with the heavy grain?

I played again on the original with levels and curves and while I got the mouth shape I could not bring out the teeth.  On the positive side I discovered that there is a button just below the right collar at the neck.  I thought the noise gave it more depth and shadow.
