Peaceful Koala (2)
|Shot of a wild male koala sitting peacefully in a tree, shot taken in a nature corridor/reserve... |
Please note the white markings (ie. the smile face or paw indent marks?) on the bottom of the photo, each koala has different markings & can be used to identify individual koalas.
The small orange patch (ie. being scratched by the koalas left paw) on the chest of the koala is it's scent gland, which it uses to mark the trees it lives in and to let other koalas know whose territory it is...

|Hi Joffre, how's it going? I did a workshop on your picture, because I think it's too bright.|
Quality-check: overall too much brightness, brightness-level lowered; Liteness-level slightly lowered; contrast adjusted; color-balance check=OK (very neutral ! , G-channel minor boost +1); saturation +1 (minor correction); sharpened (USM); brightness/contrast-levels finalized.
In this case correction was very simple. Basically the source pic was over-all just too bright. Simply lowering brightness-level was practically sufficient (with a minor tweek of other parameters).
I hope this will be helpful.

Autolevel and sharpness.
|I applied autolevel and increased highlihgt by 30% in PS CS. I also applied USM to increased apparent sharpness. I hope you like and find it educative and useful.|
