A so-so snapshot of my daughter became quite a glamor shot. B&W conversion, an additional layer added using IR film effect, then set to Overlay setting. Some cloning in the upper right corner. Selective sharpening around the eyes. Mild sepia tone added. Finally some slight vignetting. Done in Corel PSP X2 Ultimate.
