Comment by Brad:
And with the cloning you asked for and a "few" extra steps:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/19708/120/646671.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/19708/120/646671.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Then an alternate crop with presentation:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/19708/120/646672.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/19708/120/646672.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Hiya Sonya!

Nicely posed shot and love the lighting here.

As others have mentioned, there is a very unnatural yellow color cast to her skin. Not sure if it's your monitor calibration or not. To get her skin in the realm of more natural in appearance did this:
Image, Adjustments, Selective Color, dropped-down to the Yellow channel and made the following adjustments: Cyan 0 | Magenta 0 | Yellow -50 | Black +10 | click OK. Then Image, Adjustments, Hue/Saturation, drop-down to Yellow and made the following changes: Hue -14 | Saturation +7

That will get the skin very close to a neutral look. Don't be afraid to use the Shadow/Highlight, show more options, see that the settings are at 0 | 50 | 30 & 0 | 50 | 30 & +20 | 0 & 0.01% set in both boxes, then click the set as default. At that point play with the Mid tone Contrast a little and it will soften her skin a bit and give it a little glow (about +15). :Last but not least is to go Image, Adjustments, Photo Filter, and accept the default Warming Filter, set at 25%, with Luminosity preserved selected, even sliding it to 40% is a still natural and warm tones always look nice like this.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/19708/120/646352.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/19708/120/646352.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Try the steps here and see what you think. My monitor is calibrated with a Spyder3, so I know what I am seeing is right, and with only a few clicks, can get to this, all in basic editing too.

Cute kids, great pic for this challenge. Your shallow DOF is looking good, but I can't help wondering if stepping a couple of steps to your right would have given us a better background.

Could have used more port processing to qualify for advanced editing.

Comment by C_Steve_G:
Your colors appear unnatural, though it looks intended. I'm not of the opinion that it makes the image better.
