Fix it Friday - I ♥ Faces

I love taking a bad picture and making it look good. This little fellow sure is cute, but he's underexposed and void of color. The right side of his face is badly blown out, past the point of recovery in my opinion.

I increased the exposure in ACR and cropped the image so I didn't have to worry about dealing with that blown spot. I fixed the owies on his face and corrected skin tone using curves. I increased the saturation in the grass to make it look more green and burned the background to add some dimension. Gave a little eye pop and sharpening and Voila!
