    Dwayne, I love your work. I'm trying to improve my pp skills and am wondering... it looks like you dodged the area around the deer and grass, is this correct?

    Thank you very much for the comments ! I really appreciate it !
    You are right ! Those areas where lightened (dodge).

    Some lighten (dodge) tips:

    1-start with a slightly darker image to work with, use the the midtone
    slider in (levels) to darken the photo a tad, this will make your lighten (dodge)
    enhancement areas stand out more

    2-let nature do most of the work and only lighten (dodge) the areas where
    the light is naturally falling in the scene, as you practice seeing these
    naturally lit areas you be able to pick them out better as time goes on,
    also try avoiding making your own or new light that in not in the scene, it
    is ok to open up shadows a tad if they are to dark to show some detail
    in them

    Hope this helps and thanks for the question.

    Take care,
    Dwanye Oakes
