    Do I Know You?

    This is an attempt to recover an underexposed picture taken in a relatively dark building.

    Do I Know You?

    Thanks for taking a peek! Any suggestions for improvement would be warmly welcomed.

    So far as the attempt has been cocnerned, it looks like it was a success to my eyes.

    In terms of the compsition, do you think it needs that much space at the rigth hand side? I wondered what it would be like if you cropped some off that side.

    Usually when I try to repair an underexposed image I get nothing but noise. Looks good.

    Hi Donald, I wrestled with the cropping as I usually don't have an 'L' shaped subject. I thought of horizontal, but it might cut off more of the tail; vertical, but the majority of the body is horizontal; or square. I was also trying to hold to the Rule of Thirds, if possible. I'll try a square crop and see how it goes. I don't usually see a square crop on a color photo but as each picture is unique...

    Thank you John. I did get a significant amount of noise, particularly from the chin down to the paw, less so in the tail. I just kept playing with different combinations of layers and exposures to minimize the noise, sometimes at the loss of detail. The eyes were almost totally black so I tried my first attempt at retouching an eye. I had another shot with a better exposed eye to use as an example of what it should look like so maybe it worked.

    I think it has worked well. Nice tones. I think the creature is thinking "Thank heavens it's not Rob behind the camera, otherwise God knows what I'd end up like!"

    I think this is a Golden Lion Tamarin. Does anybody know if that is correct?
