This is a picture taken with my first ever digital camera - Digital Dream - Epsilon 1.3 mp, of my dog Denton when he was much younger, about 4 - 5 months.

The picture is quite blown out towards the left, but I like this picture and wondered what I could do to help it a little.

Thanks,

ISoS

As Dale said, there isn't enough detail on Denton to bring out anything more than a silhouette, although the original may have a bit more - compressing for posting will discard some. You can try the shadows and highlights tool on photoshop and you may recover some detail. You can also use the dodge/burn tool to bring some out. It also depends what you like about the pic - maybe it's the pose/outline - simply crop and play with the brightness/contrast. If you want the whole picture, I just did a quick fix, but applying the cooling filter and a bit of burning got rid of some of the overexposure.

Thanks dudes. I did try a circular crop which actually looked quite nice, but lost the file somewhere on a CD. I also forgot how to do a circular crop. Can anyone remind me please.

Here just a 5min try to see what can be done with the left too white side of the pic. Much more can be done if you take time to be more patience.

I did not try anything on the dog as I was thinking he is OK in the shadow as the whole pic was aimed to bethat way....or I'm wrong.
