Editting Help On Low Light Picture

Wed Feb 27, 2008 4:30 pm

Lately I find myself shooting until right about sunset and I end up with pictures like this one and I have seen others turn these pictures into beauties. So I am reaching to community to get help/advice on how to correctly edit these types of photos.

This photo is purely the raw image. It's been cropped and re-sized a little but not a ton. I don't use any sharpen on my camera so it's really soft. Any Advice would be great.

It's not soft but a bit blurry really. Think it can still be made into a good shot though.

I took the liberty and had a quick edit - with an emphasis on the 'quick':

You will need to click on the image to see it at its full 1024 wide. I think this is a better size to minimise the impact of the slight quality issues mentioned. Generally I tried to lighten it without completely losing the feel of the soft light, though I must admit some might say it needs a bit more of the slight colour cast removing (though of course we could debate whether that is a 'cast' or a 'hue'  wink  ).

Let me know if you need any more information.

All the best.

I see where I need to go with the picture. I feel like my pictures have a dullness to them. I need some pre-screen on these photos I took today.
