Original file cropped version

Josh Fassbind took this picture while in Tanzania recently. This was taken with a Nikon D70s , 1/125 sec., f/4.5 and ISO 200. To improve upon this, crop it from the left and off of the top. The overall picture is a little dark, using a small amount of curves or levels will brighten it up and bring out more details. The teeth and eyes of the boy look unnatural, if you have sharpened this image, go back to the original file and apply Unsharpen Mask in a lesser amount. Looks like the trip was an interesting one.
