Thanks Mr Rocks for taking the time to put a line down. I think I feel the same but the colours in the other one actually represent the true colours take on the day.

Hey,

i like the colour one best, especially the red and blue splashes which contrast with the greens.

I hope you dont mind but i had a little play with sharpening both of them and adjusting the contrast a little to give them both a little lift. I used cs2 smart sharpen which has really brought out the detail, and added a slight s curve. let me know if you would like more info, or if you think i have over done it. i'm still learning like many others!!

I see what you have done and it looks so much more crisp. Any help and advice is always welcome.

Hi,

I'll give it a try but believe me there are others who know a lot more than I. I hope you dont mind me using one of your other photos.

This is all based on the assumption you have some software to allow you to edit images in the way shown below or similar. I am using Photoshop CS2 but most of the derivatives and competitors all have the Curves and Usharpen mask which will allow you to do this.

First I used the curves tool (ctrl-M) to give the contrast a boost-

Then I opened the Unsharp filter to pull the detail out-

Looking through your other pictures they look very good and a bit of tweaking will bring them right out. All photos from Dslr's need some of this its a case of how much and once you get confident it only takes a few minutes if that.

Things to watch out for are loosing detail in highlights and shadows when using curves, and halos and strange looking edges when using the unsharpen filter. Also keep an eye on noise in the darker regions. Try it on some of your other pitcures and see how they turn out. The settings I have used are just starting points you will need to play around to get the best out of each picture.

Also the Unsharpen mask has different effects depending on the resolution of the photo, so if you downsize to post on here run another unsharp mask to see if things improve just before saving.

Hope that helps.

Chris.

Thats one hell of a reply you have given Chris. Thanks for the pointers and the appreciation for my pictures. I do find using photo editers very scary at the moment but I suppose that will change with time. I will give your ideas a go and see how things turn out.
Thanks once again.

I, too, like the color one, but it lacks pizazz. Darken it a bit, bump up the contrast and the saturation and you have this:
