Edit Me... (boy I've missed you)

Do you know how long it's been since I've participated in one my favorite photo challenges?  Quite simple, it's been TOO long!  The Edit Me photo challenge has, hands down, been the challenge I look forward to most!  I love having the opportunity to edit someone else's photograph.  My favorite ones to edit are of people so I was especially happy to see this weeks photograph.  I love the positioning of the children, the tree trunk, the background, etc.; pretty much everything.  With that being said, I made the following very clean and simple edits in PSE:

1.  Cropped.
2.  Brightened a bit,
3.  Boosted contrast,
4.  Warmed up (boosted the yellow hues a tad),
5.  Lifted the shadows from the girls face,
6.  Sharpened faces,
7.  Added a subtle vignette, and
8.  Resized for web.
