How was this done? subtle but beautiful

The first image looks normal, or pretty much the way it was delivered by the camera with little editing. The second picture looks edited, but the effect is very subtle but yet so nice. How was this done?

Thanks

Looks like a very subtle HDR-like contrast enhancement (such as Topaz Adjust, etc.).

The pig has seen better days-!

Looks like the photographer just used a curves layer and raised the bright end of the curve a little.

Curves or even Levels adjustment layer in luminosity mode.
