rhol_figament wrote about version 1: "would luv to see an i-ray version, if you ever get the chance" Heck, this WAS the Iray version! But he was absolutely right. Unfortunately. So here's the reworked version, the blonde got fired, but immediately replaced.
Speaking of replacing: I changed the render settings "crush blacks" to zero, turned the "caustic sampler" on - both recommendations from a forum, I found myself a grain remover for postwork AND I replaced the lighting by two simple emissive spheres. Added or amended a few visible props and deleted a lot of stuff that could not be seen anyway to speed up rendering.

First and foremost - N I C E !!!!! Rajib does have a good point about using dForce on her skirt. I've been playing with that for the last week, myself and it's definitely worth the effort to learn and incorporate in ones work. I do not know how long you let your images render, but the longer you do, the less noise with will have to deal with in post-production. As one last thought, if you turn your emissive sphere light temperature setting from 2900 (default) up to about 6500 or as much as 8500 you will get a whiter light for a very different mood AND skin tone. I like the way this image has generated so much commentary. Good Job.
Thank you all for commenting.
I'll give dForce a go on non-dForce products next, but before this becomes a running gag, I find myself another setup to test that with. Thanks to Rajib I now have an idea how.
@Greywolf44: Thanks for your help! Just FYI: My renders normally run until "done", approx. 1000 iterations. Normally that's enough. I chose the lighting temperature deliberately and yes, colder light causes less grain (wish you told me that earlier, would have saved me anlot of trying 😊).
