Wherein Lefty Does A Good Deed

I regularly peruse the photography subreddit on Reddit.Com and earlier tonight, while taking a break from day job-related stuff that overflowed into my non day-job timeframe, I came across a post from a fellow Redditor asking for help reconstructing a RAW file.  Specifically, he asked posted the following: Being in a generous mood, I decided to help him.  Of course, as he stated, Photoshop was going to be difficult, so I wasn't about to give that a shot.  (I'm not that altrustic!)

So I gave it a shot in Lightroom 4.  No dice.  Then I remember that I'd played around a bit with an app called Raw Photo Processor.  So I loaded it up, imported the file and...

 

...Success!

I converted the file to a jpg, uploaded to imgur and posted the link.

Sadly, my fellow Redditor didn't recognize the subject of the photo, so who knows what or where it came from...it's just some random kid:

And while it didn't really help this guy, it was fun doing some detective work, if only for a few minutes.

 

Update! It might be the father's ex-girlfriend's kid!
