    Lets see Photo Editing skills! Head to Head!

    Ok Guy and Girls

    This is a chance for you to go Head to Head with your Photo Editing skills. Its Not about the photography. Its about the art in digitaly enchancing pictures + a bit more interaction for the forum.

    The photo in this post is one I took on a tiny island called Jaradah off the coast of Bahrain in the middle east. It wasn’t a very clear day, but it was very hot.

    I have chosen this photo for this post as its not the best photo, the colours are very dull, but I can see it certainly has potential to look good with a bit of editing.

    Now the quest is to see who can make this look pretty damn good!

    Once you have posted up your Edited version, list down what you have done to it, and what Software you Were using.

    Happy Editing guys!

    Just a little heads-up to you guys.
    If you can't afford 'Photoshop' and don't want to rip 'Adobe' off then there is an alternative. I don't know how good it is, but it's free, and perfectly legal, so yay.

    http://www.gimp.org/

    It requires two downloads, make sure you download GTK+ first, otherwise the GIMP installer won't work.

    From what I've seen the user interface doesn't seem as pretty as 'Photoshop' at first, but I suppose you'll get used to it.

    Tried to give it a aged historical feeling, dunno if I succeded.
    Its basically just correction layers. Hue/saturation, levels, color mixer and an overlay layer on which I painted with a big soft brush.

    Just a few tweaks here and there. Photoshop color adjustment, hue adjustment, brightness and contrast.

    Also cropped in to create a focus to draw in the eye a little more.

    Good one Beiijing. Looks pretty real, but note that there is direct sunlight in the pic you used, the shadows would be more dramatic.
    Samsite, I like your last pic, good color in the water, maybe the sand is a bit too bright.

    Here is a handy tip:
    When you want to rotate the picture to get the horizon level, you can use the measure tool. Mark the horizon with it an choose Image>rotate>arbitary and click ok.

    Another tip:
    You can use a mask on your adjustment layers, its very useful. Make an adjustment layer (the button next to the new layer-button), choose saturation, levels, color mixer or whatever you want. Now fill the mask with black, by choosing black and clicking fill on the image. Now choose a white brush and "paint" in the adjustment in the areas you want.
