Workshop Note

Hi Tony,

Here is what I did to your defenseless image : )

This was done in Adobe Photoshop CS2

1. I ran auto levels .. the software quickly adjusted out the blue levels without me even having to think very much ..

2. Well then I couldn't leave well enough alone and I went into hue/saturation and boosted the saturation of the blues a touch .. I love your sky and wanted to see if I get more power out of it once the colors were leveled.

3. I sharpened the image using the Unsharp Mask Filter.
My default (start messing around here) settings for TE are 100% - a radius of 0.8 pixels .. and a threshold of 9 levels ..

for this I bumped it up to 130% ... it may be too much .. the
peak is now more crisp and powerful but if you look at the small snow patches .. especially low in the center you can see that I am starting to lose some of them to pixelation .. which would lead me to either backing off the sharpening (but I think this needs the sharp peaks) .. or I could spend a bunch of time being naughty in the clone tool and zapping the pixelated patches .. or I could try some selective sharpening of an area .. which might be at least as much of a pain as the last option ..

anyway hope this helps.

take care,
