  1. I took the 1st version into photoshop.
  2. Duplicated layer.
  3. On bottom layer, applied a Level adjustment to darken it.
  4. On top layer, applied a mask.
  5. Filled mask to completely see bottom layer (which is darker).
  6. And then using a large fuzzy brush painted back in the foreground elements.
Basically I just darkened the background elements to not compete as much with her face in the mirror.

I can post up a screenshot of the layers setup if you need it.

EDIT:

Oh, forgot to mention. For the starting point I used Canon's DPP to process the RAW.

RAW Tab:
Picture Style: Standard
Contrast: 0
Highlight: 0
Shadow: 0
Color Tone: 0
Saturation: 0
Sharpness: 3
Brightness Adjustment: 0.5
White Balance Adjustment: Clicked on white part of curtain on left side until I found something I liked.
Dynamic range adjustment: slid left edge (black point) to the middle until I can see the left and right sides start to clip in the shadows.

RGB Tab
Tone curve adjustment: grabbed the middle and pulled it down to saturate the face more. Near the bottom of the curve, pulled it down just a tiny bit.

Regards,
Peter

It's not that much different to process before taking it into PS. In ACR, start on your defaults, 50/5/25, click white balance and then bump up the exposure a little and then adjust the Blacks to where they clip in the shadows. Adjust the curve to bring more saturation to the face, etc. (ACR has alot more controls and you can arrive at the same look/histogram a couple of different ways so I suggest some experimenting.) I have CS3 so I can't comment on any new features in CS4.

Peter
