Hi Melissa, I also used shadow and highlights, then masked out the foreground used a hue & sat adj layer, then played with the blend modes.

Hey Ride16,

That's a beast of a fish - I catch them at our local lake after swim meets - if the kids only knew what lurks 2 feet down in the lanes by the dock!! :sad:

I used Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0, tweaked all kinds of things - Contrast, Levels, Skin Correction, etc.

I also used a free program to correct Noise - You can download it below!

Good Luck!

WOW - sportshotslive! That edit is amazing!! The noise reduction makes a big difference. I think I might have to look into this whole photoshop things - you guys have all been great in helping me out with this! It's funny, they all are slightly changed from the original, and all look much better in different aspects. Thanks again!

Ride16,

Happy to help!! Give me a shout if you need more help or detailed directions.
Contact info is in my profile.

I liked how the sunset came out & also the colors on the fish - I'm still playing with the skin tone as we speak. :G


Take care,

Nick

Cool - thanks Nick. I have some photoshop program (not sure which one), but I am so bad at it - I can't figure it out at all. Maybe I have an older version or something, because I was playing around with a friends PS program, and it was WAY easier than mine.

Take care-

Melissa
