    Olympic Torch

    I got lucky with this capture - at least I think so. He is nearly five years old, on his grandpa's shoulders above the crowd watching for the (real) Olympic Torch to come by.
    Suggestions as to how to improve it in PP would be most welcome.

    What a splendid torch, Carolyn - more colourful flames than the real thing! I would just brighten it up a bit - playing around with the fill-light, brightness, contrast, saturation, and sharpness controls in your software, to make the image pop a bit more - e.g.

    Wow Benjy- you must be so proud! What a moment!
    Charlie saw the torch from his vantage point- alas, his little sisters and I only grabbed a glimpse as we were at the very end of the leg and the bearer sprinted past and the crowd surged forward as he/she (didn't actually see) into the bus to move on to the next town. It was a wonderful atmosphere though and I thnk the children will at least remember the experience forever, especially Charlie.

    I don't mind at all... if others wish to use the thread to post their Olympic torch pics, the more the merrier.

    I would love to claim the improved version as my own, buut it was Philip who did it to show what can be done. I shall be trying to emulate the techniques he suggests myself just as soon as.
