Only one shot for today. This is the antelope picture I posted previously and finally figured out (with help from someone on the Digital Photography School forums) why I couldn't see this shot in with the original. I had it saved under a PSD ending instead of a JPEG! So, I went in and resaved it as a JPEG and lo and behold, there it was, right where I wanted it to be!
Again, for this image, I played around a little in PSE 7 last night as I was attempting to learn a little about the program. Since I'm new to digital photography, and more recently to the whole editing process, I don't know how or where I should fix things. For example, down in the lower left corner, it's a little dark (almost like a vignette to me)...I don't know what to do, or how I would fix that. Also, when I attempt to slide the bars around to adjust things like sharpness, hue,saturation, etc., I don't know how to choose what looks better. In most cases, no matter what I do, it looks fine (though in many cases it doesn't).
I realize the editing process is a learning process and it takes time and practice in order to become good at it. This is what I want to do; therefore, I will continue to "play" around with PSE 7 and ask questions, try hints and tips, and follow technique examples in the photography magazines and books using my own shots.
If you have any suggestions, tips, etc. for ways I might try to improve this picutre, I wouldn't mind hearing them. I am in the learning process afterall.
