  2. Great image this week, Punta. Just adjusted shadows / highlight in LR. Then added Tonal Contrast with NIK’s Color Efex Pro 4. 1617786_7f416b374da03bd48b42eb0cabe36e21.jpg
  3. In Photoshop, I replaced the background, added contrast and exposure to the dog, and enhanced its eyes. In Luminar, I added AI Accent, AI Structure, and a vignette. Aug 15 2020 Challenge.jpg
  4. Thanks, Punta! I cropped the photo and brightened up the doggie a little. finisheddoggie.jpg
  5. PSE14, crop, select dog, darken background, adjust clarity, add a touch of sepia, Orton effect, adjust levels etc. dog one.jpg
  6. This is such a cute dog, I didn't have the heart to add my usual rabid eyes, fierce fangs and dripping blood :(.
    So like most people, I tried to 'enhance' the photo:
    - brightening up the dog (curves with mask)
    - removing the bright spot top-right (cloning)
    - darkening the background (curves with inverse mask)
    - dehazing the photo and floor in the background to add color
    - adding a bit more color to the dog's eyes (curves) and widening the catchlights
    - cropping

  7. Thanks for this choice, Punta. All work done in PSE2020: cropped, used impressionist brush and sponge tool for enhancing, sharpened with sharpening tool.

  8. I hadn't really paid much attention to the painting behind the dog before. I was wondering why the dog was looking so innocent!
