I simply adjusted the levels to bring out more of the red and green hues. I then had to desaturated the rocks a little because i made them to red. Hope you like it.

Hi Angie, I did pretty much the same thing as CeltickRanger, except that I added a little blur to the BG starting at the midway point. Hope you like it.

The photo seemed washed out by the intensity of the light so I bumped the contrast up by 30 and added a warm photo filter in the orange hues. Hope you like it. Also I would suggest taking advantage of the full 800 Pixels that TN allows.

In PS/CS2 I selected the birds, inversed the selection, applied a Gaussian blur of 2. I then thought the BG could be a little darker so i added a layer between the BG and birds, filled it with the darkest green in the photo and reduced opacity to 20%. Hope you like the results.

This the shot of the Javelina I promised you. Took this while driving through the park. I have a new goal to get a good shot of one these guys. They are aggressive so you may have to wait a while for that shot:)

In PS/CS2 I selected the bird from the BG. Made a selection of the top bunch of leaves and a separate selection for the lower, more in focus bunch of leaves. Feathered those selections by 1. Applied a diffuse filter to the lower selection and a Gaussian blur to the top. Did nothing to the bird. Hope you like it.

I felt the photo could benefit from a few less twigs and some noise reduction. I used Clone tool and healing brush to remove a few twigs and the Diffuse filter to reduce the noise in the sky. Hope you like it.

In response to Adanac's post I Checked the reference he provided. I am more convinced now that this is a fox skull. Perhaps a juvenile fox though. I have connected certain points of comparison in the WS. Let me know what you think.

Using PS/CS2 I used Auto levels which did a good job of clearing up most of the blue. I didn't remove anymore blue because the shadows look more natural like this as opposed to too much sepia color. I also used unsharp mask on the cat. Hope you like it.

In PS/CS2 I increased the contrast +10 and then used the burn tool to selectively burn in some of the overexposed areas as well as the areas where the glow extended into the dark BG. Hope you like it.
