At a wedding feast

I took some pic of my nephew at a wedding feast.


I couldn't use a settings are about this.
(F number=3.2, Shutter Speed= 13/1 sec, White Balance=Auto)

As you see, in the layer pallete below, I've adjusted its brightness and contrast with mask. Then because his face looks somewhat flat, I made an adjustment layer with mask for face contour.

By the way, strange to say, his appearance is not to my fancy after retouching. His cute appearance has faded a lot.(I know this is so subjective ^^;;

# additional question : Which way do you prefer in this case
I mean the top right corner distracted my eye.
*Clone Stamping or Cropping?

Any suggestions and critics would be welcome.
p.s. If you need original one, please let me know.

Sorry. I fixed the link. ^^;;;

hello people.. my first post of this forum (So Happy this place exists - "Pro restoration artist")

OK.. I am currently at home and can not judge colour on my setup but would have to say i like the detail you brought back into the picture - like in the eyes - however feel magenta in the highlight takes away some of the warmth in the picture. Being dinner time i would retain the warmer highlight of a lightbulb light room to bring back that feeling you feel its missing.

And i like the recrop better :P
