1. Adjusted curves and levels and added contrast focused in the background damage (grays and whites) to achieve a “flat” look without loosing texture
2. A LOT of cloning
3. With a WACOM tablet I draw over the original picture using the
Color Dodge and Color Burn tool to minimize the grays on the baby and increase the focus
5. Ran Despeckle
6. Used Blur tool on the eyes
7. Used autolevels to get contrast and history brush in different oercentages to maintain certain zones not too dark or too brigth

At first I thought maybe it was a bit dark but now I think I really like it that way. It gives it a different look. Reminds me of being on center stage. Real nice job.

I agree with DJ , first impression was toooo dark, then my eyes went to whatever is behind the baby and it didn't seem as dark. Good job.
Good job on hands, face and shoes. Congratulations

Well I'm learning. I already rated the photo. So you get two posts for the price of one.
You managed to hang onto the thumb I lost in my attempt. I also notice that you chose to keep some of the grain on the face, as I did too.
I like that you kept something for tha baby to sit on.
I need to look into Despeckel.

Your Babylon image will probably give me nightmares tonight. Reminds me of something from a David Lynch film. Fantastic style.
