Hi All

Let me know what you think

If you decide to play around with it. Don't mess with the hightlight too much. They are already blown in the shorts in the second one. I would try to increase the midtones just a little and maybe drop the shadows by a very small amount. Last you can try to add a bit of saturation. Probably not over +16.

I actually tried it and went with a bit of color balance. I used PhotoImpact and chose the top center preset. I also ran through noise ninja to add a bit of sharpness while eliminating some noise. It gave it a bit more pop.

Here are the original and my edit. If you want it removed, say the word.

By the way I raised the midtone +22 and dropped the shadow -3.
