It needed work and I still think it needs a slight tweak. A small crop on the bottom, and left. and a little bit more punch. If you want I can show you by posting the change. It is still your picture, just want to help.

Thanks guys for the comments. I just started post processing and was surprised how much you could change a soft pic with lots of noise. Just looking for an experienced eye to critique what I had done with this pic.

The process is good. Altough I like the colors of the original better.

I also have a tip. But I don't if it works in elements.
When you set your brush to -> color. Instead of normal. and pick the color of the neck. You can just brush over the nasty purple edge caused by Chromatic abberation.

I've made a quick example..

l

ItIt is a subtle change what do you think?

This product is ULead I do not usepreconfigured things I just do; but I can tell you what i did.

1)Cropped bottom and right side. 2) manual adjust brightness and contrast by +12 3) ran a leveladjust and when it went too red, manually shifted the bal back. 4)resized the cropped image.

I hope this helps?
