I happened upon this lovely little shop in a little back street in Kos Town. It was full of unusual colourful items and I couldn't resist going in to browse. I bought some hand made bracelets, and had a nice chat with the lady, practicing my Greek. I asked if I could take some photos and she was pleased to agree.
I'd really appreciate your opinions on this shot. In my last upload of the wonderful Greek children I processed the image in Topaz Adjust and increased the detail far too much..........and ruined the shot!
I've been a bit more reserved with the slider this time.
I've uploaded the original version so you can compare the two, and would be grateful for any advice. Have I improved on the original?
I've been trying to emulate some of the excellent shots I see on EPZ where the colours, tones and details are rich - I don't know what that kind of processing is called - is it Tone-Mapping, and are there any turorials to explain how it can be done in Elements 10? Thanks for any advice you can give.
