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.

ok, here's my attempt to this challenge.
i realize it's kinda difficult to edit this one. so i sorta try to note down on what are the things that need fixing *according to my style*. here's a list.

1. The image suffers from a slight blur. Could be bad or good... so we can capitalize on this. Not a problem.
2. Image is under a heavy warm color cast. Not to my liking.
3. I notice the nice smiles, and loving vibe that's flowing thru the photo. So I wanna emphasize on this values and try boost more of it.

A lot of post processing has been thrown into this, so I cant remember the exact stuff, or recipe that I've done. So here it is with some explaination.

cng1filtereddm2_edited.jpg

1. Image was blur. I had to do some USM - not too much, but just enough to bring the eyes and smiles out. And since it has this blur overall with a warm diffused lighting from the curtains, I added gaussian blur. Yerp! Make blur more blurrer! Then I selected the center part of the image and slightly reveal more of the original. That way it sorta tricks the eye into believing the face is sharper - cuz it is! as compared to the rest of the areas. This feel added to the warmth and loving vibe.
2. I adjusted the color cast, and also some tweaks in levels and curves. Nothing fancy on this. I also did a selective desaturation with primary focus on the skin tones. Basically I wanna achieve something which has a loving theme.
3. To make users focus on the smiles on these faces, I further added a slight vignetting. This is as though there is some kinda light that is focusing on their face.
4. Then I added a border with suitable colors to complete the whole thing.

Hope you like it. Cheers!

Like DK's, Jack2's (quite studio-like) and Jay's.

Hehehheh, i'm learning after all - had thought about gaussian because of overall softness

As can be seen, the over-exposed background MUST be reduced as much as possible.
