    I got bored and took this picture of a bottle of one of my favorite beers, Michelob Amber Bock. It was pitch black outside and the lighting was minimal inside (fluorescent light in the kitchen, 100w overhead in the dining room). I just got Photoshop CS3 and want to play around with it.

    While this isn't a contest per se, I'd really love to see what people could do in PS to this image to make it look more dynamic, interesting, better quality etc. I just want to get some ideas about the kinds of modifications Photoshop could do to this subpar image.

    cool thread idea. Here's a quick edit I did.

    [​IMG]

    I started with adjusting the levels, then the color balance, the brightness/contrast, and the shadow/highlights. At one point I selected the bottle with the magnetic lasso and inverted the selection so that everything but the bottle was selected. I think I adjusted the levels and the shadows/highlights this way.

    Here's mine. Levels/contrast/hue/saturation/shadows/highlights. Agreed, a cool thread idea.

    duplicated background, sharpened mask and set the layer to hard light, auto color, adjusted the curves, and sharpened edges

    This is fun. Had to have another go. Started with the one in my previous post, made a new layer out of the background, converted it to B&W, did some levels/contrast/etc on it.

    Photoshop is wasted on images that are sub-par to begin with.

    This thread just proved my point.
