James, while I dont have the original file, and I was not there to see the shot, I believe this shot represents more contrast and more color.

I was not there with you, so I cant be sure, but I'll bet that grass was even greener than it is in my edits. I'm sure with more PS skill and more time, some one who really knew what they were doing could get that shot in better shape than I.

Can you post the a down sized original? I did not adjust much in the way of saturation, but maybe should have. . .

Hey Tony,

Thanks for posting these - I appreciate it. So the question then is, is it a problem with brightness, contrast or a little of both?

Well...I have been examining my images in PS. I don't think that the curve is at all a problem. The histograms are pretty much perfect on these critters. What I do see, however, is that by just kicking up the contrast a bit that the images seem to pop out of the image significantly more - and I am only talking about increasing the contrast by +6 on the images.

It is food for thought. I am always a bit anxious about blowing out whites, and kicking up the contrast beefs up this problem a bit. However, on images such as these, increasing the contrast really seems to help.

I will post some of my experiments later today when I get a chance to relax. Thank you both for the comments. They really help.

Cheers
James
