First challenge entry of my daughter Kim.
Used a circular flourencent tube light and put black insulation tape on part of the tube to black it out. Yes I know it covers her clothes but its the best shot I got in a very brief shoot before she got a bit upset with this bright light in her face.

Opened twice in RAW - one for face and one for tube. Tube was darkened a little to stop it from blowing the highlights. Masked out in PS.
Croped a bit. Lightened her eyes and two teeth a bit. Fixed up her skin (dirty!) Darkened around the tube a little. Applied a warming filter to the skin.
Resize and sharpen. SFW

would probably have rated this higher without the distracting white c.
