In Adobe Photoshop CS3:
I cropped this photo to correspond to my critique, I made a levels adjustment to enhance the wonderful head of hair on this fella.
I also made a slight color saturation boost of +7 and ran it by using the Shadows and Highlights feature to lessen the overexposure in the background and further bring out the features on his face (the wrinkles!)
I just tried to give a little improvement on a great photo Muhammad....I hope you take it as a compliment!

I used Adobe Photoshop CS3 to add a frame and some text. It's not professional looking but I also corrected the spelling of the word bought.
:)
Hope you like it.

Alper,
I had a few problems with this photo and I decided to do a workshop to show you how I'd change it.
Here's what I did with Adobe Photoshop CS3:

I first has a problem with something this nice being in landscape format so I changed it to portrait mode with a much needed crop.
I then brought back some light on the top left of this image as it was too dark in that area. I noticed that the color looked pretty drab on the bottom third of this photo so I added some. It wouldn't have been complete with the "natural frame" I gave it. I hope you like it!

I tried the B&W adjustment but it wasn't as effective as I had hoped it would be so I didn't do it. I did think this needed a bit of sharpening so I used the USM (Unsharpen Mask) feature. I think the original turned out great and I hope I didn't make this worse! I'll chalk it up to "practice". :)
This is a nice photo you have here!

Ron,
I used Photoshop CS3 to convert this into a high contrast black and white photo. I used the red filter in the black and white feature and adjusted the sliders until the "ghosts" appeared just the way I liked them. I also adjusted the blue slider until the sky was to my liking.
I hope you don't mind!

I copied and pasted parts of these instructions from a previous workshop that I did because I did the same thing. I may have over-saturated this a bit and I apologize for that.


I used Adobe Photoshop CS3 to:
1. Saturated the greens and yellows using the Selective color feature.
2. Adjusted the Black and white levels. I opened the levels feature clicked on the left cursor while holding down the alt key and slid it right until just a bit until a small bit of white appeared. I grabbed the right cursor while holding down the alt key and slid it to the left until I saw a hint of black.

I think this photo has some added contrast that's mostly visible in the waterfall.
I also used the saturation feature to add some color to the trees.

I hope you like it Vihang!

I wondered HOW lukie could do a workshop and not notice the missing trees! Perhaps he was in such a big hurry to add the stormy sky to the background. He does that stuff all the time!
I highlighted my area of concern and also wondered why it wasn't noted in the photographers notes that you have done some PP work to this prior to posting it. It may have given us an insight into how to help you fix the blown out sky the proper way.

Ziemowit,
I used the patch tool with Adobe Photoshop CS3 to select the child's head, replacing it with bricks from somewhere else in the scene. Similarly to the clone stamp tool.
If you'd like further instructions, feel free to ask!

I grabbed the right cursor while holding down the alt key and slid it to the left until I saw a hint of black.

What both of those adjustments did was ensure that there was some part of the photo that would print pure black and some part that would print pure white. That gave it the dramatic contrast adjustment you will notice if you look to the right and left of where the falls hit the water.

Sorry but after I did everything the file size was too large and I had to cut into it to make it smaller, I ditched the frame.

I think you had a great photo before and with these adjustments I think it's ready for your wall!

I hope you enjoy it!

Britta,
Hi!, I gave this a "shadow and highlight tool" adjustment and then used the burn tool to bring out some detail in the flames. I did add some saturation. I hope you like it.
