I need advice in smoothing out the small specs everywhere in picture 1 in order to look like picture 2. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Also any criticism would be helpful.

Picture 1 is what I have done so far. My main objective was to work on the shadowing to make it similar to Picture 2. Unfortunately the bumps show up every where and when I greyscale, as well as, darken certian areas the specs become even more visible. I have tried reading many of the tutorials. Did I overlevel it or is it just because the original raw was scanned poorly.
