Did I overdo the skin softening on this one? These are for a friends girlfriends graduation pictures and I am divided. She went a lil ham on the makeup on her face.

It was a blast of a shoot though.

Also I pulled the pic off of facebook so that I could post it from work so the quality might not be the best.

Fill flash would have been your friend here to try and help make not so underexposed. I might also try a vertical crop as the trees on the left really serve no purpose.

Agree with above (that tree trunk is really in the way) plus in your smoothing did you mask off the eyes and mouth - they look soft.

Hope you don't mind me making this edit. I will remove it if you want.

Nope your fine edit away.

I do agree with everyone that the branch to the left doesn't necessarily add anything to the composition. However after fiddling with trying to get a crop that I like I haven't found anything that feels balanced to me yet.

I hope you don't mind me trying my hand at an edit. I increased exposure and added contrast, adjusted white balance and tried smoothing out her skin tones a bit and darkened the area around her which makes her appear to stand out from the background more.

Gene's edit is superb; but I think that her left cheek makeup is too strong so I tried to balance it a bit by lightening it and darkening the opposite.
