Need help with my son's photo

I have taken this shot using my Camera. I am totally new to the CS4 world.

If you can help me change look of this and tell me what you have done to get there. I would really appreciate your help.

I am amazed by the friendliness of this group members and their efforts to help fellow humans. Hats off to you folks.

Opened in ACR, adjusted for lighting, color casts and then into CS4 where I cropped it, used selective curves in LAB for saturation & contrast, sharpened in the L channel and copied back into RGB and added a darker vignette.

Re: Need help with my son's photo

Kumar3006,
As Gary and Tareq have shown, most of the time you can correct your images rather quickly in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR). It can even be a good first step in a restoration project. Try and get used to using Adobe Bridge as your file manager. This makes the step to ACR rather natural. Unless you are planning to do quite a bit more retouching or modifications to an image, it's a natural first (and sometimes final) step to correcting many of the issues our images may suffer. You can also get quite a bit more benefit by shooting RAW (as you have). Have fun and play with ACR for a while until you get comfortable with it.
