Here's a photo of my daughter Madden taken at a music festival that we attended on the weekend -  a good before and after shot to share. The smile and the fact that she has on my sister's cowboy hat that looks like it came in her size makes the photo for me although it wasn't perfect sooc (straight out of camera).  That's where photoshop comes in and I was able to brighten the shadows on her face, warm it up and eliminate the background that I found distracting.    I love what photoshop allows me to create.  Pretty amazing, right?
