Hi Amp30,

Thought I'd have a go with this as well.

Cropped image.

Levels Adj layer, and adjusted individual R,G,B channels to colour correct.
Curves Adj layer to tweak the blues a little.

Applied Neat Image to reduce noise a little.

New layer, cloned out minor ommisions in BG.

What an adorable picture. I tried Neat Image, levels adjustment, some cloning and sellective blurring for artifacts. Then upped the saturation. Hope you like it. MargaretM

Amp30

And here is one more variant. BTW, this original you uploaded is quite small in size and highly pixelated. If you would like a print quality image just upload a larger file to www.pixentral.com and post the link here. I think they will accept an upload of at least 2MB. Regards, MM

my version..

Hello, everyone.. Peachpuff here from the Philippines. I'm new here I hope you don't mind my participating in this post... Hair-wise, I kind of revised the photo a little, Miss amp30. I hope that is alright with you. Otherwise, I'm sorry.

I am very sorry to hear that your youngest sister is no longer with you..

My version of the photo can be found here:
http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?pi...0Od8e4lblDkms1

Good day to all..

P.S.
I used layers, brush (with different degrees of "flow"), level adjustment, saturation, burn & dodge, line tool...
