    South for the Winter

    Ok..I've listend to Colin and everyone else and made some changes. Actually TOOK this photo in RAW and played with it a bit in the RAW Editor.

    Of course it's now a .jpg for uploading purposes. Played a bit with black and white.

    I think it's a little too dark but not sure what functions I should be using to lighten it up a bit...Brightness...Contrast.....fill light...etc..

    Hi Becky. Yes it is a little dark on my screen. Try the Curve command. Lift the centre of the curve up to brighten the mid-tones in the image while leaving the black and white ends unchanged.

    Ordinarily I'd do it Peter's suggested way, but in this precise example; I would actually be tempted to artificially darken, or even clone out, the background highlights that are causing the mis-set white point, then raise the exposure.
