First correct the yellow cast. For the shadows, you can duplicate the image and use the clone
stamp set to lighten mode. Soft edge, 100% opacity. Sample from the light area and clone
onto the shadow areas.

This will take out all shadows, including the ones you need that show the contours of collarbones,
shoulders, etc. So after you remove the undesirable shadows, you'll have to restore the useful
ones. Dodging and burning can do that. (Instead of the dodge/burn tools, I use curves adjustment
layers in luminosity mode.)

i thought peano did a really good job there :thumbsup:
Great work peano! :thumbsup: the bit of maintaining the details / shade of collar bone on the left was good. I would not have the patience for that.

How about a step by step video and publish in youtube? Or a document? Sorry, I am a newbie in Photoshop and would love to learn. If it isn't possible, I can understand.

select and place on different layers. Use the clone tool and a mask to bring back the collar bones. adjust opacity. retain some shadow to look realistic.
