Took this just before Christmas. It was bloody freezing, light levels were crap and there was a big fence in the way, so I could'nt use the flash. It's also been cropped.

The settings were F3.2 @ 1/60 seconds spot metering and a ISO speed of 64.

Neil,

I hope you don't mind. I had just installed PhotoShop Elements 5 and this gave me an opportunity to try it out.

I adjusted the levels a little so you can see what is in the image. I tried a little using the unsharp mask, but wasn't very successful with it.

If you don't like what I did to it, let me know and I'll remove it.

Happy New Year.

NH Mom try when you use the unsharp mask doing this.

Make sure your image is flattened.

1) click on image/mode/labcolor
2) you then need to go to your channel pallet and click on lightness
3) then click on filter/sharp/unsharp mask and set your numbers to amt 85%
radius 1.0 and threshold 2
4) click ok
5) go back to image/mode/RGB color

hat should give you a great sharpening. If it still needs sharpened more do a CTRL F to duplicate

Opps just read you aren't using Photoshop 2 but I bet elements has something very similar if not exactly the same.

Thanks, Sneazy.

I'll use some sort of your directions in PSE5 and see how it works out. I've been taking lessons at www.eclecticacademy.com about how to use PSE4 off and on for the past year. They are great. 6 week classes for $20 that take you through step by step how to do things. You work at your own pace each week which is great when you also work full time. I'll have to look through my class notes again on how to sharpen things.

You're welcome, Neal. I saw the word duck, but couldn't see the photo well enough to see where the "duck" was:-) Then, realized what you meant once I had lightened it.
