Hi Angela, for this shot I used levels and a saturation layer to reduce the blue cast, then I sharpened marginally to complete the work. In levels I increased the red mid-point to 1.15, and decreased blue to .85. In a saturation layer, I decreased blue and cyan by 30 each and increase green by 10. On a separate layer I sharpened the image with smart sharpen, then masked the periphery around the deer. I hope this meets with your approval. I have removed the copy from my terminal.

Hi Kedar, in this workshop I wanted to make the bird stand out a little more, while still maintaining that stare of his. To do this I cropped, and with this I kept the right eye on the centre plane (kind of a Mona Lisa approach) to keep the illusion of the stare. I also raised the bird within the frame. To complete the job I increased the size a bit, so it may look a little pixily, but I was hoping to provide a fair comparison. I then sharpened to bring it back to its original state, and added the frame back in. I hope this meets with your approval. I have removed the copy from my terminal.

Hi Achim, in this workshop I mainly wanted to boost the saturation a bit. I was fighting with the 200K limit imposed on workshop copies so I actually boosted it a little more than I might have normally and increased the contrast a bit to make the smaller file size copy "appear" with a little more definition.

To do this I first used unsharp mask (15, 30, 1) to boost the contrast a bit. I applied a mask to tone down the brush around the animal. I then increased saturation +30 and masked down the brush a bit again.

I hope this meets with your approval. I have removed the copy from my terminal.

Hi Valter, in this workshop I have flipped the butterfly on the vertical axis and sharpened with smart sharpen. I hope this meets with your approval. I have removed the copy from my terminal.

Hi Ram, I wanted to see how the butterfly would look with a different orientation, heading up in the screen, towards the light (now on the right). I don't know the plant, so this may seem totally wrong to those that do, but in this case I am trying to emphasize the butterfly. The plant to me is a nice colour backdrop.

I hope this meets with your approval. I have removed the copy from my terminal.

I've included this small section from the top of the falls to provide a sense of scale. There is a lookout, just to the left and above the falls. On it there are 4 people.

This was a group of the birds sitting around a bowl feeder, waiting for some mince meat.

Hello Maurizio, in this workshop I wanted to crop out some of the plant to show off the moth more on its own. It's small here, but if you had done this you could have shown the moth a little larger. To fill up some of the size I've added a frame. I hope this meets with your approval. I have removed the copy from my terminal.

Hi Goldy, in this workshop I was looking to bump up the contrast a bit. I started this process with levels, where I pulled in the black and white points. I then bumped up the master saturation by +15. Finally I sharpened with smart sharpen, though it probably didn't need much in this area. I hope this meets with your approval. I have removed the copy from my terminal.

Thanks, John
