Maybe selective tinting... to create focal points/ bring certain details out.
I was going to focus on there faces but I got a little carried away... had to go away and sit on my hands awhile... but I hope you catch my drift. I just did a sepia and used a soft brush at low opacity (varied 10-30%) and set to 'colour' mode to gradually build the colour in. I had a bit of fun with this cute pic... I had to guess on colours, so I apologise if I am way off the mark there.

What creative minds you've all got

Thanks for some great ideas there,
oltenius, yea I see what you mean about the hair now I've looked at it again,(funny how a later look provides a different view) I'll have to see what I can do.
lkroll, didn't see that for a second, how the hell did you do that?
Littlecoo, that, I tell you, is not far from the mark on colour!
Love them all, I envy you lot.....John.

Sweet Palms... now all your cherub needs is a set of wings and a slingshot
IKroll, how did you get the code effect?
