Workshop Note
Hi Manyee. I simply adjusted highlight/shadow to try and improve it a bit. I also threw on a quick gaussian blur @ a radius of 1.5 in an effort to cover the BG noise. These adustments produce the best effect in raw development or the 8 or 16 bit TIFF format. They provide more layers and a wider lattitude of adjustment. Even so, this was a bit too far out on the highlight & shadow to bring it inline..The shadow adjustment has brought more detail to the head, as you can see and has toned down the OE parts.
I hope this helps. Howard
P.S. - The only way to learn is to experiment in raw mode. You have many here at TN who can answer ?'s when ya have em'...
