I just quickly did some selective color changes. I probably got the dress too blue.

Re: How could I make this better?

giggles Nan: That was the first thing that took my eye so I widened it.
steps:
pspx2 ultimate
smart photo fix (its not so smart
turned down the sat, turned off the focus, deepened the shadows
light/dark darkened the baby on the rights face
skin smooth 75%
color: red/green/blue and tweeked a bit.
I know, my tech terms stink, and Im actually shocked I remembered that much, and I might be leaving something out as I do it as I go.

Re: How could I make this better?

I'm using PSP X and did a curves adjustment, then did a selective color correction on the baby's face, levels adjustment on the face also. Tried to get it closer to the older childs coloring. Then did more selective color balance adjustments on the clothing. Then a couple of curves adjustments on the baby's clothing to whiten it up. After I finished all of that, I did an auto color fix and suprisingly, it made it better.
I did notice that it looked like the photo had somehow become elongated but I didn't finish fixing that like Kate did. I didn't get rid of the noise either. I'm sure it could be much better with more time.

I like the blue in the dress, this is much crisper.
