because of mixture of cool light and warm light....(ok..ok..i dunno how to adjust WB in jpeg), I opt for B&W and a tighter crop...

Sweet girls! I like the colours so decided to stick with it.

Got rid of the massive headroom and brightened up their faces and enhanced the whites of the eyes and teeth. A bit of unsharped mask too.

Here is the result:

Here's mine, crop out void space at the top, cool down the colour tone a bit, remove red/yellow cast, boost contrast and midtone exposure a bit and very slight sharpen.

It look so fake. Looks like plastic eye. Maybe it's due to our monitor differences.

I could see some photo are too dark, some a bit bright.

I'm using 17" LCD here.

Even I wash this photo, it looks a bit different than what I viewed on LCD.

Not easy to fix this pic - especially the diff in color cast on the 2 faces ... little girl's face has a nasty green cast. Derick's approach equalises the diff

btw you can do a quick check of your monitor's settings - follow the link in my signature
