Shoot and Edit Challenge: Growth (after)

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!  The lovely and talented Ashley and Jill have teamed together to share their awesome photo editing tips and tricks; this week’s prompt/theme is growth so I used a photo of my cousin Madison at her third birthday party.  I first did my version of a "clean edit" in Picnik, which involved adjusting the exposure, applying the action "vibrant" at 35%, and then removing the strand of hair that was running across her face by using the clone tool (it looks okay, but I know I could have done a better job if I had photoshop).  Here's a before and after comparison of my clean edit:



And just for fun, I converted the photo to black and white and then cropped it using the golden ratio settings:


Here's a comparison of all three; which one do you like?
