Here are two more fixes. Converted to black and white - one I kept the blue of the eyes, but lowered the opacity.
I did a second fix of the photo. I can't explain what I did differently except when I did a layer to sharpen the eyes I also fixed the layer for intense blues in the eyes. Then I painted in just the eyes on that layer using a layer mask. Then I adjusted the skin tones a little at the end. I also rotated it and cropped it. Here is my second fix:
iheartfaces.com hosts a weekly challenge to "fix" a photo. This weeks photo is entitled "beautiful blues". So here is my fix:
I won't totally take you step by step through what I did, but here is a summary:
I applied several adjustment layers - curves, levels, color balance, channel mixer. I combined my layers. I applied sharpen to one layer just for the eyes. Then I created a layer mask using alt-the layer mask button (circle inside a square on your layers palette), and I painted with white just over (the dark part of) the eyes. I combined the layers and used the spot healing brush on little spots of food on her face and teeth. Then I applied a final sharpen.
