Hi All,

This is my 1st challenge. I thought it appropriate to the season. I did lots of adjustment layers, a curves layer to take out the red/pink cast, a hue/sat to brighten the xmas ornaments, one to adjust her skin tones and the colour of her teeth and I cloned out the light switch on the wall. the top part of her dress is more blown out than I'd like it to be, but I wasn't quite sure how to tone it down. I was happy that the bling around her neck and the ring on her hand popped. Feedback welcomed.

Fine work Pixeltickler,
The Xmas tree looks wonderful.

It was hard to tone down the blown out areas on her dress. I think I selected those areas and used the output slider at the bottom of levels to tone down the highlights.

Best Wishes
