    I will c&c your work for you, tweak your photo with a repost of the photo
    and a list of the tweaks I made so you can pick up some pp tips.
    ONE photo per photographer and a 35 photo limit to this thread only.

    PS Please note the tweaked photos from my last c&c thread will be
    deleted to save upload space on my Zenfolio site. Thanks

    Take care,

    Dwayne Oakes

    After reading your previous C & C threads and enjoying the outcomes I'm feeling brave. One of a series of shots taken recently at Disney, It was the first time really shooting with a new camera so there was a week of experimenting and learning. Fuji Finepix S8000fd,

    I don't think it is, there was another thread a couple weeks ago that was also here in this section and there was a variety of images in it...but really I guess it's up to Dwayne.

    good

    -great off center comp
    -great mood and mystery (blue color and mist)
    -exposure is right on

    nit

    -stray branch in the top left is a bit of a distraction
    -photo is noisy
    -photo has lens vignette in the corners
    -photo has a slight tilt to the left when placed on a grid
    -to many lights (takes away from the mood of the photo)

    tweak

    -straightened the photo
    -put the photo through NR software

    -lightened (dodge) the dark corners (vignette)
    -lightened (dodge) the mist in the BG

    -healed out the stray branch in the top left
    -healed out the lights but left three under the tree to add to the mystery

    -added a tad of selective USM (sharpening) to just the main tree

    Hope this helps and thanks for posting.

    Take care,

    Dwayne Oakes

    I was hoping you'd have another one of these threads up soon.

    I took this about a week ago at Black Mountain Point on Lake George in NY. It was a great day for testing my new polarizing filter. And this was one of my favorites from the day

    I tried a few things in photoshop to make it a little better like adjusting brightness/contrast and saturation, etc but I was wondering what you could come up with

    good

    -good comp, it works here
    -exposure is right on
    -good detail
    -low noise
    -contrast and color all look very good

    nit

    -photo has a slight tilt to the right when placed on a grid (lens distortion is typical here at 4.7mm)
    -some shadows could be opened up a tad
    -stray objects in the far right sky could be healed out

    tweak

    -straightened the photo
    -added a tad of contrast boost (very little)

    -opened up (dodge) some of the shadows a tad (tower tops) etc

    -lightened (dodge) the three gold balls on the flag poles and the orange lit
    areas on the one white tower (right)

    -lightened (dodge) the clock
    -good colors but I turned down the blue a tad (personal choice)

    -added a tad of global USM (sharpening) to get over the AA filter

    -healed out the stray objects in the far right (sky)
    -healed out the red dot on the building in the FG center left

    Hope this helps and thanks for posting.

    Take care,

    Dwayne Oakes
