Found this doe just off the trail on a hike last weekend. She just stood there chomping away, letting me take pictures. This one is my favorite, however I think it looks just a little bland and the colors aren't as deep as I would like. Opinions?
Sure. I used Photoshop CS6, but Levels is available in earlier versions as well.
There are a couple of ways to get to it: Ctrl-L, in the menu up top go to Image > Adjustment < Levels, or in the newer version of PS it's over on the right side, its icon looks like a bar graph.
I moved the right slider mostly to brighten up the image a little bit. Considering the light, I thought the deer should look a little bit brighter. I moved the one on the left by 1 to increase the contrast a tiny bit.
It's not a bad idea to move all three around a little bit to see what it does. I often do that a little bit and then settle on what I like.
Thanks! I'm currently experimenting with Lightroom (I'm still on the free trial, havent quite decided to buy it yet) and I worked with some of the contrast levels and got a product that I liked a lot more. Thanks for the input.
