Digital Photography Tutorials - Ralph's Starrett Lake

Ralph submitted the photo below to the digital photography tutor page to be critiqued.

Ed liked the photo, but felt it could really benefit from a touch of post processing, using software.

Photograph of lone saguaro - submitted to digital-photography-tips.net by Doug Weber

The changes Ed made were made in Photoshop CS, but could be done with even the most basic of image editing software.

He selected Layer, and then New adjustment layer, and then selected  Brightness/Contrast  He clicked OK in the next box.

He then went back to Layer, and then New adjustment layer and this time chose Saturation .

Finally, he flattened the whole picture, and added a touch of sharpening.

To do this Ed chose Filter, then Sharpening, and finally Unsharp Mask. He set the Amount slider on 100%, the radius to 0.7, and threshold to 0.

And the result is above.
