Is This Any Better?

With my ratio falling from 74% to 50%, I decided to ask you your opinion on one of my rejected photo. -dark-

Here's a curved photo...

It still looks dark and over exposed. If you can, try adding some fill flash but darken the exposure overall. If you don't get the exposure correct the first time it is difficult to fix later. Try using a layer and the 'Multiply' tool to lower the over exposed areas. Then add some fill flash. To know for sure if it is workable we'd have to see the original.

Hello Matt and thanks for the advice.

Do you know where I can put an orginal file? I don't have space for it here @ A.net.

Regards,
David

PS: I'm not using CS2 very much, but I'll try to find this "Fill-Flash" feature.  Silly

Hey David,
You can host an original at imageshack.us or on photobucket. They should be ok just to show the exposure of the original.

Just for clarification "fill flash" is from my PS Elements 2.0 days. If you use curves it would be the area in the lower left corner of the diagonal line. If you drag it slightly up it will give the same effect.
