    I took this picture of my daughter's best friend and her baby. I like how it turned out but does anyone have any c&c to offer to make the pic look better. She wants to be able to print this out into a 8x10.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would suggest some levels/curves adjustments to brighten up the child slightly and and some more aggresive work to bring out the detail in the mother's face. Be careful, since brightening of under-exposure will lead to noise, it becomes a balancing act between enough detail and too much noise.

    Depending on how large the original image is, I would consider a much tighter crop, removing the bottom of the image to exclude the mother's forearm, and most of the 'empty' space image right.
