The wonders of photo editing
I used picasa (excellent, free program btw) and the filtered black and white option, filtering the red out on the image. That cleared her complexion miraculously. Then I started again with the original (color) image and supersaturated it. (that turned her face grotesquely orange, but made the blue in her eyes more intense) Then I switched to paint shop pro (photoshop type program, not free but a whole lot cheaper than photoshop) and layered the two with the b&w on top. Then "erased" the black and white eyes to reveal the supersaturated blue ones underneath. Turned out cool, huh? And the original is cropped from the pic I posted on "teaching my baby to nurse"
