It looks great, but the color is also more pronounced than it was before. I try to keep the skin-tone more subtle. I could have gave it more tan, but why? If you want more pigment on the faces, just let me know? Understand that on my monitor the brightness and contrast settings are at well under 50%, because of my weak eyes. So it is a little difficult for me to know what other people may be seeing on their own monitor screens. Also you need to take into account if you are using Warm, Cool, or some other Color settings?
Viewing different monitors is always a problem unless they're calibrated, which most are not. Mine is, so Mary's tones look as close to ideal as I could get them (in 5 minutes of playing, anyway); I suspect that your monitor is showing more vivid/saturated color.
I actually reduced saturation slightly from your version, but the major changes were shifting cyan toward red, blue toward yellow, and reducing black in shadows. These operations are on separate layers, masked to show only faces and hands.
