used healing tools of cs5 to make overexposed skin look better and
added noise to add little bit texture to the skin.

The photo can be fixed but some detail is already lost in the specular areas.

Personally, while the photo is a nice candid shot, I don't think it works for a yearbook photo. Perhaps if you're purchasing a half or full page ad spread in the yearbook it might work, but I wouldn't use it for the main senior photo:

1. she isn't looking at the camera.
2. her neck is not visible giving the impression that her head is floating above her body.
3. her pose/position caused her to push her head forward resulting in some lens distortion (her head appears large and out of proportion with the rest of her body)

Anyway I processed the image using multiple exposures blended together to recover details in specific areas; I also removed the blemishes on her face but kept the freckles. There's much more that could be done like removing the two signs behind her head and the glowing electrical box in the background.

Edgy but not creepy enough to warrant the Mystery Machine?

IMAGE: http://kirkt.smugmug.com/Photography/Link-Share/i-gMV6hzT/0/X3/IMG_3449b-X3.jpg

The rendering from raw was performed in RPP at half res, with the exposure lowered 1.5EV - here is a screenshot of that rendering in the RPP interface - the magenta tint showing up in the sclera of the eyes indicates sensor saturation:

IMAGE: http://kirkt.smugmug.com/Photography/Link-Share/i-Tb6M83n/0/X3/IMG_3449-RPPScreen-X3.jpg

The processing was performed in Photoshop, concentrating on the face and jacket and pushing the background back (maybe too much, easy enough to bring it back) and deemphasizing the wood in the foreground. I did not mind pushing the highlights on her face, as I thought that was part of the look.

What you did, maybe unknowingly, was some nice ETTR.

I tried to remove some of the distracting elements (IMHO) from the image like the papers behind her head, and the different elements on the back wall so the focus is on her and your eye does not wander to those distractions. Along with toning down the highlights and such. Here is my take.

The problem is the head (as if cut and pasted on the body) . i guess you have to shoot again.
one more attempt with replacing background.

Nice job with it! I'd remove the sign behind her head, too.
