For Color Picture:
-Opened up image in Adobe Camera Raw
-Tweaked exposure and whitebalance
-Opened in CS5 and ran Creative Blogging Actions Contrast Boost III and Contrast Boost II, then tweaked the opacity on both.
-Ran Ying/Yang on (TRA) to add a subtle vignette
Sometimes I like to add skin softening, but in this case I like the look of it without it.

Liquified her stomach just at where her dress and her shirt meet.
Burned the Shadows in the background, fence, hair and jewelry using the burn tool at 24%.
Sponge tool on background, and jewelry at 15%
Duplicate background layer and switched the blending mode to multiply.
Lowered opacity to 50% and put a black layer mask over.
Then using a soft white brush I painted the background, fence, hair and jewelry to add depth.
Using Wish Makeup Counter Actions from Wish Workshops and Wish Photography http://wishworkshops.blogspot.com
I retouched the skin and eyes.
Dreamy Smooth Skin at 50% on skin to smooth
Creamy Skin at 50% on skin to lighten
Rosy Cheeks at 20% on cheeks for a touch of color
Kiss Me Shine at 20% on lips
So Sharp on the center of the eyes (not the whites), lips, jewelry and hair.
Sweet Sharp 2x's on entire photo.
Then I duplicated the background layer and ran Gaussian blur at 30%. Blending mode switched to Soft Light 52%.
I then used a Florabella Texture from the Texture 3 set. Florabella Collection http://FlorabellaCollection.com
Golden Autumn. I desaturated it and changed the blending mode to Soft Light at 63% masked off the model at 100% and faded around the edges.
