Red face Photoshopped Photo Critique?

ORIGINAL PHOTO NOW REVEALED, SEE PAGE 3!~

First off I don't want critique on the photo itself, because I didn't take it, but I think I can post it here because its a photo of me. ((yes I know it's burning your eyes xD))

Anyways, there are a few things in this photo that I photoshopped out. Can you tell what they are? (After I get some responses, I'll show the original photo so you guys can see what it looked like. xD)

I quote this from a thread I looked at earlier,
"Photoshop is for fixing details. If you can tell it's been photoshopped, you aren't doing it right."
Soooo, I wanna know if you can tell what's been photoshopped. ^___^

((NOTE: Please take into consideration that this is the first time I've tried photoshopping something out of a photo, so don't be too hard. xD))

I didn't lie xD I just wanted to see if you could figure out what I photoshopped.
And that's a retainer. I can take it out. :P

I didn't mean it like that, but you should know as well as the rest of us that you can hide things (blur, smudges, etc...) on a smaller photo.

I meant lying by altering a photo that represents something that isnt' real, when all I had to do was click the next photo in your gallery.

It's a vicious cycle...trust me.

It's cool xD
I didn't mean to try and hide anything by the way. O.O
lol... I know what I did to it will probably be obvious because It's my first try. xD

EDIT:
The link in the description is gone
The link in my first post now takes you to a bigger picture
I DO NOT have braces, I have a removable retainer xP

It looks good to me; nothing stands out that's been obviously messed with. I could take just a generic guess that you smoothed your skin out and removed whatever blemishes might have been there, but it doesn't look unnatural at all. Good job! ^_^

P.S. iluvhorsez, love your sig <3

ok so i cheated and looked. Looking at both high res shots, I think you did a pretty good job grabbing the majority of what you were trying to remove. Curious which tools you used in PS (There are good ways and bad ways).

maybe make the face a lil lighter? I can't quite see her eyes.

add some fill light to the photo if you can via curves/levels or if you have lightroom.
