Firstly, I cropped the lower part of image a bit. Next, it was used tone curve tool for RGB channel. (Input value:149, Outout value: 114). And then, it was used shadow/highlight tool. (Shadow volume: 40%, Highlight volue: 16%). Finally, it was done unsharp mask after having done noise reduction of the sky and girl's leg.

Maggi,

What I did here was to select the sky in Photoshop Elements 8 and reduced the levels of the sky to bring back some of the detail. I added a megenta filter to add a little colour to bring out the silver of the dandelion. I know this is not everyones taste and you could add any colour you want.

Finally I cropped to being the dandelion more into the shot. Sharpened and saved for TL, oh and I added the border.

I hope you take the workshop in the spirit of TL. Keep up the good work and happy shooting.

Regards,

Mark

Cropped, sharpened and added vignette.... If I had time, I could have cropped less of the brown and replaced the brown with grass so that the bench be positions better vertically.......

I cropped, sharpened, added a vignette... The cropping could be a little extensive, I could have cropped less from the lower part and change the brown area to grass..I hope you like...

I used photoscape to straighten the waterfall alittle and this eliminated the dark part in the upper corner,used backlight to lighten the bushes a bit and added contrast.Unfortunately not as sharp when uploaded but just a thought.
