(This is a slightly wan version of what it looked like before saving it for the Web.)

Selected out the blown highlights, then worked Levels on the rest.

Touched up saturation.

Brought out some details with dodging and burning.

By the way, Digcamfan, this is a really nice photo that speaks of home with its warmth, safety, and pleasure in small things.

When I looked at your original, digcamfan, I thought it was soooo nice and welcoming and I decided I couldn't do anything for it that you hadn't already done. Then I scrolled down and saw barbara's fixes - even warmer and more welcoming! You guys make a great team! :-)

A nice one, digicamfan !

Well,I looked and looked and , in the end, I decided for an old look effect, creating a new layer with a sepia tone and erasing parts with the colors that fit that look: brass, dark green and the napkin holder ( is this its name ?).

I also tryed to select and erase the flowers on the lamp in the sepia layer so that colours appeared but they were distracting to me.

I prefer this one. I did not fixed the slanted horizon cause I thought it was somehow part of the shot.

Very nicely done, Bcoultry and brtsergio...

It is wonderful to have two pair of eyes whose work and talents I greatly admire improve upon my submission.

Yes, the tilt was there...I was at a friend's house with my camera one recently morn and this shot "grabbed me" (shooting into eastern sun behind drapes ergo the blown highlights).

I was going for an old time effect...which both of you improved
