    The stripes on those helmets hurt my eyes (and why didn't you get shots of the crash?).

    Shrunk to 850 pixels for some reason it hurts my eyes too but it is SOOC no sharpening and better yet the large looks sweet.

    It is very rewarding. Feel free to post an edited version (you just have to promise to tell me what you did and remember that I have very little post processing knowlege when you explain it).

    Cropped to 6x4 vertical to reduce the vacant space
    curves adjustment to slightly increase contrast and brighten her up a touch
    sharpening (unsharp mask radius 1 strength 100% in photoshop) to bring up her eyes and hair
    painted on a little blur on her right cheak (our left) which sharpened up too much

    I like how subtle little changes can make such a difference in a photo. Thanks for explaining the changes you made.

    Like the shot and the changes that DPR made helped it a bit.
    I find that pics of people taken unposed and candid often give a greater insight into the real personality than formal 'Olan Mills' portraits.
    Here is a sample of one taken during our churches' Christmas program of the girl playing Mary.

    I like this look for this particular image. It reminds me of the art you would see in the old, original Heavy Metal magazine. I think it needs some rotating to make the center building verticle though.
