When taking this on my Kodak DX6490 the LCD was showing AE failure. Despite that I just took the photograph. C how it has come off.

This looks like a great shot but it's a bit too dark to see. Can you play around with it a bit? Even if the bakground stayed dark but the girl was brighter it might be easier to see.

I'll be waiting!!

hey rose

digcamfan has tweaked that image--the child looks much brighter/clearer. anyway the image was taken when the exposure etc was not optimum. thanx for viewing & commenting.

Yes, he did a great job! Pretty much what I had in mind. I don't know what programs you have on your computer but I use Microsoft Picture It. There is also Adobe Photoshop and a world of others. You have to find the one that is most comfortable for you to work. It is a whole new world of fun!

Hi Gyalkhang,

Actually, I don't have or use PS.

I did it all in paint shop pro 8.

I kept bumping up brightness til I could see the image, then upped the saturation, contrast a little with a lil unsharp and clarify.

But all credit should go to you!

You had the "vision" to "see" the photo before you took it!

Hey digcamfan

The image is definitely brighter and more clear after u tweaked it but didn't u like the original one with its shadow and mysticism?? Just a thought.
