Photo editing-exposure, brightness and contrast

I'm taking another class at Jessica Sprague's website. This time it's photo editing. It's high time I learned how to use Photoshop properly. So this is the first lesson-exposure, brightness and contrast. My very first try at one of my own pics so I'm sure it could be a lot better. I have a lot of pictures to practice on. So this is a picture of my son holding the flowers we bought for my daughter's dance recital last summer.

I know it looks like I only have one kid but really I have more. It's just that this one is the easiest to take pictures of. I'll be trying to use more of my older photos (from when my girls would actually look at me to get their picture taken) later in the lessons.

Ok, now this made a huge difference! The color in the edited picture is crisp, and beautiful! It doesn't hurt that the kid is cute either, LOL!
