Looks like you've done a good job. I'd be happy with that.

I can understand wanting to replicate the original photo ... but why not clone those two spots in the trees completely out? Just fill the white in with greenery cloned from around the area? The top left bright spot is especially distracting.

I'm also not sure I like how her dress disappears on her left shoulder -- don't know what it originally looked like but now it looks overexposed.

I do agree about some of the original weirdness, but I wanted to leave the pic in it's original form as much as possible.
