  7. Geoff says:

    These were two owls I happened to see land in a tree one night near where I was staying in Belize. I was able get some photos with flash. So the first photo is as taken (in RAW). The second is a cropped version. The third is a copy of the second but with “red eye -pet” function used to remove the red eyes. All done in Photoshop Elements Quick.

  8. Geoff says:

    Cropped version

  9. Geoff says:

    Cropped with red eye removal.
    Original was: f9, 1/125, (set on manual), ISO400, 80mm, with flash.

    • Henri says:

      Amazing red eye fix Geoff, just a small clone fix needed for the black blob on one of the branches. Great image and composition. You must have a powerful flash, how far was the owl from the camera?

  10. Geoff says:

    Hi Henri.
    I did not notice the black blob but it is a puzzle. The photo in question was just a downsize to 800 px and the original did not show the black spot. I just now took the same “original” and reduced it again to the required 800 px and the black spot did not recur. So I have no idea why it appeared in the first submission.
    I am guessing the owls were about 25 feet away. The flash was a Nikon Speedlight SB 600 (which bit the dust thanks to batteries that leaked and has been replaced by the newer version the SB 700).

    Here is an original image submitted by Eric. It is called “The Wave”, and only 20 people per day are allowed in. The Wave is located in the Coyote Buttes North Special Management Area of the Paria Canyon/Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness Area in Northern Arizona. Maybe you can comment further below Eric by clicking the “Reply” link below the image.

  12. Henri says:

    Here is Eric’s post processed image. Can you comment further on what you did in Photoshop Eric.

  13. Eric Peake says:

    The Wave is a photographers dream come true. This fragile sandstone formation was carved initially by water and then by wind erosion. Its protected by the Bureau of Land Management and it is hard to get one of the 20 permits issued per day. There is no trail or signs, fortunately the person I was with had been there before otherwise I would not have found it.
    Shot in raw. I used Adobe Photoshop CC 2018. Under Adjustments there is a program labeled HDR Toning which increase Detail by +30 and Saturation by +30. The next step was to adjust The Detail, Saturation, Vibrance, and Exposure to taste. Fun!

  14. Jim Springer says:

    Here is the original, unedited shot of a photo around the Rosedale Community Centre.

  15. Jim Springer says:

    And here is the edited version which included some cropping and exposure adjustment.

  16. Loral says:

    Snowy Owl – Straightened and Cropped – White Balance adjusted

  17. Henri says:

    With a different variation of graduated blue background, and brightening of the owl itself. For some reason this looks more realistic than the original image. At least to me.

  18. Henri says:

    Here is another variation, with a darker background sky.

  19. Bev says:

    This is the before photo of my granddaughter. It includes a lot of distracting background. It was shot with my Sony A6000 (18-135 Sony lens) 1/80; F 5.0; ISO 4000.

  20. Bev says:

    I did manage to figure out how to erase the black chair so now I just need to figure out how to blur the background.

  21. Henri says:

    Bev’s grand daughter. Background blurred with Phtoshop Elements 15 layer masking technique. Minor facial fixes with clone stamp.

  22. Denise says:

    Henry, I am using my Mac Photos editing. I didn’t buy the Adobe Photoshop yet. I tried to erase the background obstacles but it didn’t work for me? Do I need Adobe Photoshop in order to do this?

  23. Donna Fraser says:

    This is a before picture of a sea lion with a distracting background

  24. Donna Fraser says:

    this is the same picture of the sea lion after cropping

    • Henri says:

      I really like the way you cropped this image, it really enhances the composition. The sea lion in the 1/3 intersection with strong leading lines leading up to the face. I like the subtle variations of black and browns. Well done Donna!

  25. Donna Fraser says:

    This is an after picture taking out the background using clone stamp

  26. Donna Fraser says:

    oops I didn’t seem to upload the before picture of the Raven so I will try again ..

  27. Donna Fraser says:

    This picture of wild flowers had a time stamp on it

  28. Donna Fraser says:

    I tried to remove it using spot healing brush..its a bit rough but I prefer it to the time stamp!

  29. Dave Arnold says:

    Here is a picture of Waterton Lake from the townsite campground on Jan 3rd. It was taken from inside the vehicle on a very rainy and very windy afternoon. The next image is same as this one with some post processing including an increase in contrast, an increase in saturation, some cropping to take out the door frame and immediate foreground and additional purple hue

  30. Dave Arnold says:

    after post adjustments — third attempt at posting

  31. Karen McDaniel says:

    Before and After Snowy Owl: Aperture Priority, 400mm, F9, 1/2000 S, Centre Weight, ISO 400. Edited in Photoshop Elements. Adjusted the sky color and healed the wires.
