Not well detailed, but spot lit the middle then desaturated and gaussian blurred background. :)http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0903/DrKen/3meet133.jpg

Cropped to vertical (portrait orientation) 8x10
Added vignette to de-emphasize background and focus on mom and son
Converted to b+w b/c I felt like it, and added some contrast.

And really, you could crop even tighter, to get the cup and the beer drinking dude out of the frame... but usually you want to do that framing in-camera, so that you don't have to crop your 10mp image down to 3mps or whatever.
