Greg, I'm having trouble with the color space.  The posted image looks nothing like the image I have on my computer.  What space should I use for the postings?

Hi Greg - It's been well over a year since I last participated.  I set the light and dark points and then used the curve to lighten the green leaves a bit.

Greg,<br /><br />Thank you very much.  That sets a high bar.  One of the key things I hoped to learn from the course was how to eliminate color casts.  I think I have progressed a long way towards being able to do so.  This photo has driven home the point that one needs to know what the story or goa...

This has been a very eye-opening experience.  Each suggestion has contained a number of valuable ideasand the variations in impact that the various final images has is revelaing.  Equally important is Greg's comment that he was not 100% sure of what my goals for the images were.  This is someth...

Here are two that I am not happy with.  The first is of Victoria Falls at Sunset under very low water conditioins - the worst in many years.  This image is my first attempt at a HDR shot.  I want the detail in the rock wall but it's just too muddy.  I can't seem to strike the correct compr...

Lee - thank you again.  I will learn to do this since it seems to do a better job.  Likewise for the focus sharpening.  I have read some of Dan Margulis' books but never really put them into practice.  Working with curves has been a big barrier.  It seemed a lot easier to screw things up than t...
