The photo was taken in a early morning in May. The original is one with a kind of blue-ish colour, like the one I put on before. I took Willie's advice from last time and turned it into B&W.But the photo looks plain...I added about 50% multiply on. The consequence is that I've lost more details of the ship. This is an alreay heavily cropped photo, my lens couldn't reach further..I wonder if there is anything else can be done to make it look better. Thank you.
Location: Weymouth. I think that the back cliff was Upton Fort.

Hi Jasmine,
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've simply tweaked your image using the shadows/highlights tool and sharpened a tiny amount before uploading.
Sadly, it's suffered the fate of many of my mods. and has degraded in the upload. It looked quite a lot better and nowhere near as bright on here.
Still. hopefuly, it will give you some idea of what you can achieve.

Cheers,

Bren.

Sorry Bren, I called you pam in the edit!

I've uploaded a mod (well a mod and a half really - it failed on me half way through the first attempt and I don't know how to delete it!) just for a different idea, I put it through one of the presets in LR 3

Thank you Bren for your MOD, it is closer to the B&W,before I put 50% multiply on..I couldn't think out any better way,I thought that maltiply would help.
Thank you Nick, the original one before I turned it into B&W with a kind blue on it,..it's another idea to strengthen it, rather than get rid of it..
Thank you all for your kind comments.

I think it's all been said above Jasmine. Sometimes you have to work with what you've got. I have loads of heavily cropped bird shots because my lens wasn't big enough. But you shouldn't bin it I like it as a piece of history. The highlights and shadows is probably the only tool to make a difference and the anti-noise might help. Sorry can't offer anymore help.

I'm assuming that you mean you added a second layer to add contrast and/or sharpness, Xiaoli. If that's the case, you could simply mask out the ship so that it is less affected. Use a brush at 20-30%, & keep going over the ship on the 2nd layer until you are happy. Just don't go over the edges, or you'll leave a halo around it.
