Fix it Friday with I ♥ Faces

On Fridays the folks over at I heart Faces will post a photo that needs some fixin and then people like me (many much better) will make a post on their blog with the photo and their fixes.  It's fun to see what everyone comes up with.  Click on the button below to see what the other contributors came up with.

 Here is the original version of the photo for today's challenge.

Here are some of my fix it versions.
For this one I played with the curves and did some high pass sharpening.  Then I warmed and boosted the color a bit to help the photo pop.  I also did some high pass sharpening and lightening on the eyes to bring them out as well.

For this version I took the edited version from above but softened the colors and added a few layer hazes to gain a vintagy look.
 For this one I cropped the photo and just muted the colors just a bit more.
For my last "fix" I used the cropped version and did a B&W conversion on it.
