    Here, you can see the seal completely raised and the boat is able to sail out into the open river.

    I was amazed at how little water escaped from the lift when it was in operation; just a few little drips. This compared massively with the large spurts of water that escape through the canal locks when they are being used.

    Hi Craig,

    Again, I hope you don't mind my "playing around" with your lovely photograph!

    In Photoshop Elements 11, I used a layer mask in Levels and selectively lightened some parts of this lady's face - oh, and some of her clothing too - to try to reduce the strength of some of the shadows. Quite difficult to do on a small image but would be much easier on the full size original one.

    See what you think anyway!

    Cheers,

    John.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    I hope that you don't mind my "playing" with your photograph!

    Using Photoshop Elements, I opened the image in RAW, reduced the noise a little and slightly increased contrast and saturation before opening it and giving it just a little touch of sharpening. Perhaps the saturation is a little strong, but see what you think!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    The Levels histogram suggested that, although there was some white pixels (in the sky at the top), the majority of the image was dark and with low contrast. I used Levels and Brightness/Contrast to raise the overall midtones and increase the contrast.

    Hope you don't mind!

    Just a bit of copy/pasting, cloning and resizing fun! Hope you don't mind: it keeps me off the streets.

    It took only a few seconds to check the Levels histogram and to see that there were no highlights at all. Pulling the highlight slider to the left to where the histogram began forced the lightest pixels up towards white (255 on the Richter!), and a compensating rightwards nudge on the Gamma (midtone) slider ensured that the foreground was nice and dark. A lot quicker to do than to explain!

    What do you think?
