Alright, the "Is photoshop cheating?" thread inspired this. I want to see how everyone uses photoshop and similar programs. I'll start with another one of mine:

Before:
photo%20046r.jpg


After:
photo%20046t.jpg


There was a bunch of flowers, and out of all the red ones, there was one yellow, I thought it was kinda neat, but as you can see, the picture came out dull, and the flower had a few tears in it... Soooo, out with those... hehe. I went reallly heavy with the contrast difference, maybe too much? I kinda like it, though. It looks almost like a flower you would expect to see in a fairy tale or something... heh...

My guess is hue/saturation for the colors and clone stamp to fix the tear.

Colour Curves and cloning! Yeah, basically I just patched the holes with existing flower on the photo, and then messed with the curves until I got the desired product!
