    How do I make this look more classy? Like carefree, back in the day picture, but not all ruffed up, cracks, sratches(old photo look).

    Maybe sepia tone??
    Or, if you don't wanna be extreme, desature a little or push a bit of yellow into it (give it an aged feeling).

    I personally feel it's a bit over exposed on her face. Particularly on her nose. And it also feels tiny bit too soft for my taste.

    Black & White on Mat paper... Black & White always gives most things a classy elegant look to it. And Mat, it just is beautiful. :)

    Greg said it right, over exposed in the face. it'll be hard to get a b&w out of it with the right brightness/contrast and not have a grainy pic. it might be to bright. I would have tried to crop down the top and bottom as she has a long face and the long, vertical image definitely shows that off.
