PSE - Adjusted the colour using the colour cast tool, applied a little USM, adjusted levels.

Unfortunately, I don't have my LCD calibrated so it is difficult for me to properly get the shot perfect color wise. I also tend to saturate colors a bit too much when doing my fixes in PS CS2. I tried not to touch this photo before I posted it to see what the forum thought. But with that said, thank you for the fix, even with my monitor like this, the picture does look better.

I would like to know, what do you typically look at when fixing a picture like this? What made you decide to play with the curves a bit? I am looking for direction as I would like to enlarge some of my photos for display in my house.

Again, thank you for the help.

Hi,

I think maybe a little fill flash could have helped here. It looks a little flat to me. The catch lights in the eyes would have helped here as the main emphasis of the shot should be those eyes...
