Just testing out some lighting (clam shell) and post processing techniques. How did I do? and is the processing too much?

Looks good to me! Nice job!

Two tiny nits -- I also like cropping off the top of heads, but it might be a little close to her hair-line in this case. And your fill might be a tiny bit strong under her chin. The effect on her skin is very flattering, but her jaw line looses a little definition because her neck is the same brightness as her chin. I'd be tempted to try knocking her neck 1/2 a stop or 1/3 stop down in post

Thanks! Lol I usually hate cutting off the head but I'm trying to branch off of that. Good to know about the hairline.

I think you more or less got away with it in this case because of the way it's brushed forwards in the middle. Oh, and I added a second nit about under-chin fill about the same time you replied. Not sure if you saw that. Sorry!
