"Ponytail Princess" = Fix it Friday @ I ♥ Faces

This weeks photo comes from Katarina @ Rambunctious Joy. This sweet little girl is adorable.

The Original Image:

My first edit was to crop it and boost the colors, lighting and sharpness:

I then did a high contrast black and white:

I wanted to try a change the background a bit. I layered a texture over the image, lowered the opacity and then used a mask to remove the texture from the Ponytail Princess:

On this edit I extended the canvas on both sides of the little girl. Then I cloned the background in to create a continued background. I then boosted the colors, and ran PW's "Lovely and Ethereal":
