First one is far too smooth. Second is better, but perhaps even a little less smoothing would be best.

I'd say a bit less would be better.

Two is pretty close...go one step less and will probably be about right.
When the skin is as as smooth as plastic...that is what it looks like.
Like the shot.

Any suggestions what software? I heard good things about Portrait Pro. Im currently using PSE8 for smoothening. Thanks for the input. Really appreciate it.

I like the 2nd edit best also for smoothing. I might also suggest a bit of sharpening of her eyes and to brighten them just a bit. Here's a quick edit to show you what I mean. I hope you don't mind.

I use Port Pro. If used conservatively it works really well and only takes 3 or 4 minutes per photo.
Be very careful with whitening eyes and teeth....nothing looks weirder than to much whitening.

To me, for this style of shot, number 2 has a good forehead and her right cheek. Her left cheek is too smooth because since its in shadow, it should show more imperfections/pores than the slightly more blown out right cheek.... I think. :D

Too much skin smoothing for my taste; her left cheek has no features as they have been removed in the PP.

Yeah it looks blurry right around the left cheek area, you can tell it was fiddled with in photoshop. Maybe a little less than the 2nd one. 2nd one is better than the 1st IMO though.

1st of all, really great shot!!! Love the lighting falling down on her and the composition. 2nd, the model is stunningly beautiful. 3rd, yes I agree with the others, the second pic is better but could use a just a tiny bit less skin processing. Almost there!
