It's a brand new fragrance that was just introduced and I decided to find some stock images of it, and I used photoshop. Thats about it.

No I am not advertising anything. I just randomly decided to tinker around with the image, and I thought my result was pretty nice so.

lol sauobeatbath -- he was a bot, spamming all over the forum!

Personally Matrix, I'm having trouble figuring out what you were trying to achieve. It seems very flat compared to the original photo. The hand looks old and grizzled. It might be cool if you accentuate that somehow: give it lizard skin or a skeletal effect or something. <g> Overall, I think it needs some contrast added back in. Maybe get rid of the grey BG and put something else there. IDK really, just my opinion.

so i take it your version is the 1 withe the adjusted brightness and contrast may I suggest that you so a levels tweak to bring back the blacks as the washed out grey ruins it for me

I dont know what you did, or your initial intention of what you wanted to achieve...But I will say that the end result masks not only the actual brand and label of the cologne, but also takes away a lot of resolution from the original picture. This is not retouching. Retouching is meant to eliminate small errors, like light or blurriness and to enhance the overall pic, adding maybe some depth, or some color adjustments...making it more crisp and appealing to the eye. It seems that, no offense, you did the opposite.
