Can someone fix the eye and fix up the color/contrast? I can't.

I've been working on names too, screen names are a bit too impersonal for me with some of you guys at this point.

Oh I don't know, I think calling her Boobs is quite personal.

Nice photo. I boosted saturation +10, and in Smart sharpen added 0.8 radius @45% on the remove gaussian blur setting. In the manual levels adjustment, the graph was flat on both the right and left sides, and I moved the arrow on both sides until the graph started sloping upwards. I also lowered the brightness a little on one of the horse's eyes.

Here ya go,

I brought up the blacks a little more to bring out the Horses and details surrounding them by sacrificing the background.

Gave a shot at it...

Upped the red in the knot a little, blurred the background a little and upped the color, fixed the tack, and the horse 'red eye'.

Question is... why are their ears not forward? ;)

Looks good too. I like Subimatt's because it seems a bit sharper but I definitely wanted the red bow to pop. I'm not sure why the ears were back. I think they were scared. This was taken at a outside neighborhood holiday party thing. These horses were carring Santa as he came in to the party.

So then that is an Elf climbing on the back of the horse?

Yay, free time!

Finally got to your email and I found out you didn't send me the original after all. But here's what I did to the web sized one you sent.

http://tardypizza.com/Images/NSOP/IMG_0744a[1].jpg


Nothing fancy, clone stamped the eye using the other horse's for a reference, cloned out the midget (can be done better), shadows/highlights, levels, 10% sat boost, 3 passes of unsharp mask (20/60/10 for contrast, 75/.75/2 and 50/.5/2 for sharpness.

Since you're wanting to learn how to PP, if you like what you see we can walk you through how to do all this stuff in photoshop.

Very nice edit Tardy! I thought Dogged had the best one so far, but yours has better background and is slightly sharper.

This is another edit using a completely different process from the one I used before. This time, in PS CS3 I opened the JPEG image in Adobe Raw, allowing the photo to be edited like a RAW file. This is a new feature in CS3. I used tools in Adobe RAW to recover the background and the detail in the harnesses (using the fill light tool new to CS3), to sharpen the image (using the clarity tool new to CS3), to saturate the background without saturating the horses (using the vibrance tool new to CS3), and to warm the color of the horses slightly (by slightly adjusting the color temperate, which requires Adobe RAW). The only change I made outside of Camera Raw was to the eye of the horse in the foreground (I used a new selection tool in CS3, and then lowered the brightness level).

This shows how much of the dark background can be recovered in the raw converter.

This involved the same process, but done to a less extreme.

their ears are back because they are scared or uncomfortable in the situation. they really don't look like happy horses, they look tired in this photo. the front horses rear leg is even "cocked" like it is ready to kick something.

We should set up a chat session so we can walk you through some post processing.

And Bob, that's an excellent example of how powerful the Adobe Raw converter is.
