    Looks good...I would add a slight vignette by burning the edges, especially at the top.

    vignette

    There are several ways to add a vignette. Normally, I will just used the burn tool to darken the corners/edges/background.

    Here is an example of a shot where I added a vignette with the burn tool.

    Very nice photo Meg.

    I agree with Big Mike about the vignetting :thumbup:

    I use the burn tool in Adobe photoshop as well.

    The Adobe Lightroom Beta has a vignetting tool. By the way, that program is so awsome.

    It's pretty easy to go to far with the vignetting, so I'd go light on it. I think a contrast boost for their faces would help. You have a lot of sharpening artifacts (zipper, hair, teeth, eyes, chin), so I'd use that on a lower level.

    Great grab....but overall too sharp...can you tone that down a bit? I agree about the vignetting..
