Here's my quick offering. Sorry for the sloppiness I was re-touching while trying to get ready for work and I am on a laptop.

AFTER\http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/7232/grantthomastest.jpg

Edit: Now that I am at work here is what all was done.
       1. Got rid of hair strays and did some subtle shaping     
           to the hair. Subtle eyebrow work.
       2. Minor skin clean up making sure to keep majority of
           freckles.
       3. Dodged some shadows on the face. Got rid of right
           right side shadow on lower cheek.
       4. Converted to LAB and masked in colors to give make
           some pop.
I think thats about it, like I said I was really kind of rushing.

Please please fix the upload for #5. A friend is dying to edit it but it's not the right photo. She asked me to ask because she can't post right now she's at the store.

Remove the TIF extension. I noticed it came as filename.cr2.tif

remove the ".tif" and you should be able to open it in its RAW glory.

And...you didn't put up the hi res of this one, so it's a quickie, I wish I could have played with the larger version. I noticed your avatar had a cute heart photoshopped from the hair, so;
