    a couple quick edits. I upped the exposure, added contrast, did a little curves adjusting and wb adjusting too. Also cloned out some distractions.

    edit: now that I see it up, I don't really like the b/w...still too muddy on the skin tones.

    It's not a white balance issue, it's a composition issue. As JanineH mentioned in post #5 and The_Traveler alluded to with his edit, your subject is just plain on the wrong side of the shot. The subject needs to be looking toward the center of the image. If they are on the edge looking out they look cramped, just as this one does. You have a lot of dead space on the right side of the shot and it needs to be on the left side with the subject looking toward the center.

    It can be fixed as Lew showed in his edit, but it's going to take some time and editing finesse just as he did.
