So, I was going to manipulate some of my photos from my recent camping trip tonight and post them, but most of the pictures were of the camp fire and my camera just doesn't have a fast enough shutter to get good campfire pictures without them looking blurry. I did take some pretty ones of the lake, but nothing I liked enough to manipulate. But, as I have really started looking at photo enhancing lately, I thought I'd give it a go with a different picture.
The original photo here was taken 8/26/2010. If you are wondering why he, Sebastian, looks wet, it is because I am one of those odd people who insist on bathing my cat.
I really love how the enhanced photo turned out (click the image to see the enhanced version LARGE). There are only two real complaints I have with the finished version. 1) I forgot to isolate the name tag from the background and it ended up blurred too and 2) I wish I could have brought out more shadows in the white area on Sebastian's face, as his muzzle looks a little bleached out.
Any feedback is welcome (especially if you have any ideas how to do better in the future).

I can't tell you how to manipulate the photos nor do I know enough of what to suggest; I only know what I like and I like what I see... especially the eyes and black and white contrast. Looks like a good job to me, Anika.
BTW, I see that RobinNestor just added a new post to her Blog: A Bird's Eye View. Besides the coyote, she talks about Kitty and his exploits climbing the lava rocks and stalking! It runs in the family. ^.^
