Workshop Note
Purpose: To suggest a different crop, to reduce a percieved greenish cast and to brighten up the midtones a bit.

Method: Cropped to give a less centred composition. Used Levels, moved the Green midpoint up, the Blue midpoint down a little - to make "Toby" less green. Finally used Curves to brighten the image a little - one point, midline pulled towards the top left.

Not suggesting it's better, just it's an alternative. I hope you like it :-)
