Edit My Photo — by Ron McCoy

Yet another “Edit My Photo” project entry, and this one is from the guy who came up with the project idea — my Grandpa, Ron McCoy. This is now the 9th official entry into the project, and all current entries can be seen at the temporary project results page. So here it is, and here's how it was done:

Using Photosuite 7 for my photo adjustments,

  • Exposure: darken the dark areas, lighten the bright areas
  • Moved the saturation up to 120
  • Straighten the horizon and cropped
  • Cloned the buoys out
  • Masked the water around the bird and raised the contrast to 20
  • Resize to 600 pixels
