Extra Details: Started with MCP Quick Clicks Free Preset 2b Exposure Increase 1 Stop. Adjusted highlights to be -88 to remove white clippings, added +7 in contrast and +10 in clarity. Added +12 vibrance and +7 in saturation. Added a little noise reduction, and some sharpen.
Used multiple different adjustment brushes to 1) fix the background (reduced clarity to -100, set shadows to +20, and noise to +45. Moved Tint to +75 and temp to +45 to get the right colored background), 2) multiple different adjustment brushes for the face, i.e. added highlights to the T-Zone, shadows to the cheekbones, under neath under lip and around the face, to smooth out the skin (LR standard preset), and to add a hint of clarity back). 3) Adjustment brush to increase the white in the hat and coat, and 4) adjustment brush to darken the skirt along with spot removal to remove white hair from coat off of the skirt.

Moved to PSE 10 and added a slight high pass filter to sharpen slightly. Finished off with MCP Facebook Fix and Sharpen for Facebook lite.
