nmess (2301) 2006-11-06 18:53:16I used a lens correction filter to remove the lens distortion causing the tower to lean. A miniumum cropping, adding back a black border and applied approx. 75% USM at .5 pixel.
nmess (2301) 2005-05-17 23:20:22I first cloned out the pile of gravel to the righ. Then I cropped the road out and resized back up to the original width. I adjusted the levels a bit to increase the saturation.
I think it would be much better from the original image, but hope that might give you some ideas on composition.
nmess (2301) 2004-12-14 23:17:58Using PSP I started by cropping to improve the framing and eliminate some uninteresting space.
I then added an adjustment layer to add some brightness and contrast to the bird, while leaving the sky as it was.
I then increased the saturation a bit to bring out more of the color.
I resized it to bring it back up to max size.
Finally I added USM to bring out more crispnes in the image.

I added an adjustment layer, darkening while leaving the contrast be. I using the eraser, I erased the darkening in selected areas leaving the sky alone. I then merged the layers, used the auto color satuation feature and added some USM to sharpen the image just a little. I hope this helps.
