I'm a huge fan of eyes that pop, so I did a little saturation adjustment for him. But yeah, basically the same as everyone else: upped contrast and clarity, and vuala!

I felt a portrait crop of the head resulted in a strong photograph.  Removed twigs and other distractions around the right and bottom edges. Brightened and sharpened the eye. Set white balance off the whiskers. Camera RAW first then clean-up in Photoshop.  A fun few minutes.

This is done with Photoshop CS5 :) and just resized in an application called Photoscape.
The colours on my laptop are a bit wonky, so I hope that this came out fine. MIght be a tad too bright.

This is mi take, but just standard processing. Some contrast, sharpness, and some color fixing

Lightroom 4

Brilliant! I don't understand why most are trying to warm it up. It's unnatural.

I'm surprised by how bad the noise looks at ISO 400, even with LR 4. I guess it's the sharpening (lots of clarity perhaps?!).

Interesting to see how everyone's edits are so different. Here are mine - worked on them approximately 5-7 mins.
5D3, 6D, 600D, RX100
16-35L, 24-70L II, 70-200L II, 100-400L, 50L, 85L II, 135L, 24TSE, 40, 100 macro, 18-55 II, 55-250 II, 600RT x 4
I come here to learn something new, not to learn how bad my gear is - I know that already ;-)!

I also felt this image lent itself to a portrait crop.  When I cropped it in DPP, I also eliminated all in-camera sharpening as well as some color correction using 'click white balance' on the whiskers as others have done.

I moved the file into CS4 where I cloned out some distracting elements in the lower right of the frame, followed by re-sizing.  I then adjusted the highlight and mid-tone contrast, increasing them slightly.  I sharpened the image in Lab Mode to avoid artifacts and halos.

Here is the result...
