Hi Sarah - no problem at all and thanks for the encouragement, and for taking the time to enhance the photo for and explain the changes. I am not an expert on photoshop (I have PS Elements 7) - complete beginner in fact and are a bit scared of changing things ...... and to make matters worse my version is in French!!
Thanks once again - DG

Your photos are very well composed, by ever so slightly over exposed. I did a bit of post processing with Photoshop Elements 8.0 (a subject I teach). Here is what I did: (1) I sharpened the photo. (2) I increased the contrast to make the type more readable and darker. Then, (3) I reduced the overall brightness a bit. I hope that you do not mind that I adjusted your nice photo.
