FAQ: Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?
No. This is a site for learning, and we will gladly help you learn to do it yourself. We have a "Image Help" forum just for that purpose. Click on "Forums" on the navbar to get there. There is also a "Classifieds" forum if you're willing to pay one of our members to work on your photo.
That said,... I had a play with your picture.. it is not any way near pageant quality or what they would want.. but.. I had fun with it anyway.. If you want pageant quality please use the "Classifieds"
I used Photoshop and the background I made using Ulead Particle.Plugin
