I started by adjusting the Levels.  I used Topaz ReMask for the extraction and then blurred the mask a bit.  Next, I used a program called Backdrop Designer to create the background.  For her skin I used Imagenomic Portraiture.  Lastly, I used Nik Color Efex Pro for the vignette.

As for tutorials, I would recommend Lynda.com.  For $25.00 a month (I believe) you get access to their entire library.  For a little more you can also get access to the pictures they use in the lessons.

This edit is amazing! love it.

I wish I was half as talented! Do you use any certain filters, etc to achieve this. I am amazed by how professional you made my photo look. Now if only I could do this

Can you recommend any tutorials that you have found helpful?
