Before:


After:


I took this with my Nikon D3000 and 35mm lens.   There are great light coming through a large window.   I edited it in Lightroom 3 Beta 2.   I sharped her eyes, desaturated, brightened, played with blacks, contrast, hues, saturation, and clarity.  I just love the sweet look on her face!

I love how you took an ordinary photo and made it really special. Hard to believe it was the same photo! (not that the original wasn't cute too!)
