Default Good Morning???

This is just a snapshot, but it captured a moment so well that I really liked it. I have been trying to figure out how/if to crop it, and what other things I could do with it. I kind of like the warmth added by the chair, but here face is really what I thought was great.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Soup

I was up late tonight and played around with PSE 8. I'm real new to this editing thing. It is pretty fun.

I'm usually not a fan of selective color in photos, especially photos that don't suck to begin with. In this case, I really don't like the selective color -- you're using a different color than her eyes actually are. What's that about? Just because you can edit a photo using some PS gimmic is no reason to actually do it. And, while the B&W conversion was done well enough, this photo seems to lose a lot in the conversion. The pastels of the original are quite compelling -- why throw them away?

I admit I used the sponge on the eyes to lighten the iris slightly.
