Do you have any suggestions on how to go about brightening teeth and eyes in this photo? on one side it seems that anything I would normally do would look unnatural because of the light conditions, yet I worry that the eyes and teeth need to be a little clearer...

And, also, any tips on the sunflare, especially close to mom's hand? I figure I should use the channel mixer but I am not sure what numbers to use... both the red channel and the green channel are affected.

I know, right? This is the whole thing, and how I was thinking of cropping... I think I partly made it worse by darkening the background too much - so this is my new attempt with a little less darkening of the background, and a slight whitening of the teeth...

May I see a closer crop of it?

I trust you've seen this?

I did, and it is on my mind. I don't think I qualify, because of the numbers of posts required? I have been so inactive when it comes to photography and editing... let me know if I am wrong...

I will try cloning. As for forgetting... it is very possible! But I am also exhibit A for your statement that people get overly concerned with plasticity. I did avoid sharpening, though; at least I can credit for that ;) will try to be more aggressive with the noise removal.
