  • My shot at editing, your thoughts?

    Hey everyone,
    I've been trying for a very long time to try and figure out this whole editing thing. I'm using Photoshop, so it's not the editer. I'm not sure if it's the colorblindness, or the original images (the camera) that's the problem, or if I just don't know enough.
    Anyways, let me know what you think, and which (if any) are uploadable.
    The first image is the original; the second, the edited. I've only included one at first, I'll add more either this evening or next.

    Thanks,

    Cut down on the first one's size!! The second one has some potential though. Needs a tad of fine tuning but should be accepted. Though get a screener's advice before you do anything.

      #1 is way too large
      #2 is too noisy and soft

          Doh!

          The Exif shows you were using a Canon PowerShot S3 IS. But why F5.6 with shutter 1/1000??

          I'm at work now, but I may have a go at your original sometime later today....

            As mentioned by Gianluca, your original that you posted is very poor quality.
            Not too sure whether is is part or all due to compression by the file hosting site or a combination of things including camera set up.
            If your original was that quality, then to arrive at your edited version shows your PS skills are not at all too bad.
            Perhaps a confirmation on the quality of your original file , and the full EXIF info would help.
            Correction of possible exposure problems may be all that is required.

              If you can knock out the noise slightly it might be O.K. It's quite noisy for a 6MP point and shoot.

              Was this 100 ISO ?? I'd suggest shooting around f/8.0 on a nice sunny day like that !

                Unfortunately I canīt read the EXIF, but the noise will kill any attempt to save it. If you get rid of the noise, it will look like a painting.

                  Agree with Stefan. Adjusting the levels will make the use of Neat Image inevitable at which point your pic becomes prone to look artificial.

                    That's what I thought. All of my shots come out as such.

                    It was actually ISO 80, IIRC (what I usually shoot at). Thanks for the tip thought, I usually go on TV; I'll try aperature priority next time.
                    And to those who have asked/commented about the two images as separate ones, please refer to the original post where I said:
                    The first image is the original; the second, the edited.
                    Thanks again,
                    Mitch
