    Someone suggested it would be good to try and fix bad images, this on is pretty bad, good to see if someone can make it look good...somehow.

    Re: Who has a shot we can have a play with?

    I take a lot of basketball photos and this one is pretty standard. The second photo shows how I usually try to fix it with photoshop CS2. 1st adjust the levels, 2nd adjust the brightness and contrast 3rd selectively blur the background by selecting, feathering and applying gaussian blur and finally a quick sharpen. If the image is really noisy I try to reduce noise by using remove noise in the filters but didn't in this case.

    Anyone have any other bright ideas? I find that sometimes these images (esp when light is low and there is an awful yellow colour cast) just look too overprocessed when they are printed out. Maybe I should check out the in camera settings to improve this. I usually use Auto ISO and get great results (Canon 50D)

    Re: Who has a shot we can have a play with?

    This wasn't hard to fix (by my standards which is amateur btw!)

    This is what I did in Photoshop CS2.

    Adjusted levels - there were mostly mid tones here so slid the b & w sliders towards the middle.

    Applied the "Beyond Edger" Filter it accentuates the edges - I love this filter!

    Finally add a spot light in Filter -> render lighting effects -> chose the Omni.

    I had placed the image on a white bkg for working on and liked the way it looked like a postcard so I added a drop shadow to the image and put a border around the white bkg.

    Hope you like it!

    Re: Who has a shot we can have a play with?

    Thanks for that twisted, looks great, I had a play before I posted up and it was similar to yours, but I didn't have the top left brighter, which looks great, wanted to see what everyone else came up with.

    Re: Who has a shot we can have a play with?

    Hello... thought I would give this one a crack. My photoshop skills are limited to a few tricks... namely cut, paste, blur, sharpen, crop and adjust colours.

    This pic was an interesting one as you really needed to get rid of the very large piece of ship on the left to make the cops boat stand out or alternatively try an artistic impression of it.

    Not sure of the exact rules to this thread but thought I would stick to the provided ingredients and not import any backdrops. What I did here was copy the right hand side and flipped it over and pasted it over the left hand side getting rid of the boat. Using a layer I matched it up as well as possible and blurred the edges to blend.

    Added the motion blur to hide the joins and the fact it is mirror image and take you eye of it so you focus on the boat. Its still a little rough around the edges and probably could have blurred the water some more but you get the idea.

    Nicely done! Don't worry - there aren't any rules for this as far as I know, so feel free to do whatever you like.

    Re: Who has a shot we can have a play with?

    I had a go at editing this picture... good picture, by the way.

    I am a journalist, and I have edited it as such. There is a lot of extraneous stuff in it, so I got rid of all of it with a very heavy crop. I also hit the dodge and burn quite a bit.

    Mostly the overexposed silos at the top were getting to me, so that's why I got rid of that. Also, the messy bits just above the police boat were really distracting me, so I tried to get rid of that as much as possible.

    I also cloned the big ship so there wasn't a little bit of daylight poking through at the top left.

    Basically, there was too much in the picture, and it had to be trimmed down. Without further ado...

    Agree... the way you have cropped it tells a story. Cops on the prowl through the ship yard. I like it. They way I did it, it is just a cop boat cruising along doing nothing exciting.
