What a completely delightful photo - it has an element of both spontaneity and joy. Smile

The picture has a distinct blue colour cast which needs to be removed,e.g. by using the colour cast 'eye-dropper' tool on the bluish areas of (say) the hat. This helps to warm up the photo, as it were, and give a more natural and pleasing rendition of it.

I've uploaded a mod which demonstrates what I mean, and which I hope will help.

Hi Leighton first I like to say I have been looking over your work and there is some wonderful stuff there, keep it coming.
I have loaded up a mod which I have brightened the eyes, then a little shadows and highlights. As the pictures was so bright I have added a little edge darkening to tone it done a little.
Hope you like it...

Thanks everyone and the mods are great. It's a difficult one regarding the sky.
