The setup for this image

Not an inspired composition but I knew this was the quickest shot I could get while not taking my attention away from the small person I was in charge of.
Step 1
Crop and rotate. This took a few goes to get it the way I wanted.
Step 2
After crop and rotate. I chose a layout that created a meandering line, exiting at the top right of the screen.
Step 3
I don't use curves often in Lightroom 5, as the basic panel does a good enough job. However I felt like using them today; this is a gentle "S" curve that increases contrast - introduces some nice dark areas, and tops off the peak of the light areas.
