Smile Re: Bad Color and more!

This photo was also rejected for bad color, as well as bad crop and sharpening - too soft. I'm starting to wonder if a monitor calibration might be in order. Also wondering if I want to shoot sRGB, or Adobe RGB, or something else? My monitor offers a few color choices, including different Kelvin temps. Everything should match, right?

Would you guys ever buy a used Colormunki from ebay? I have a pc and laptop. Other than those two devices I wouldn't expect to use the Colormunki again. At least for the way I understand its use.

Anyway, below are two attempts at correcting this photo. I took a lot of photos both RAW and jpeg. Maybe I should begin with the RAW copies? If this image cannot be salvaged I have plenty others I can try and learn with.

How do I make a duplicate image in Lightroom? I only know how to do so in Photoshop, so far!

Here are the photos. Thanks for your coaching and expertise in advance, to all those who reply!

Also, can I link this post to photos in my gallery here?
