Got no work today, guess I can contribute

before

after

three moves.
1. levels (always check them first, adjust each channel's levels separately, not the composit levels)
2. Selective color (not for the uninitiated, pro-level feature available since the early days, made to imitate typical tool from an analog drum scanner, does very little detail degradation when used in the right hands)
3. curves (basic contrast curve, didn't need much)

before

after

4 moves.
1. Levels (almost always your first move but always the first thing you check)
2. curves (contrast again, this time lots of it. After levels, the lack of contrast in this shot was the next largest problem, so it was adressed next, always move from the largest problem to smallest)
3. Selective color (this is an invaluable tool in drum scanning and I'm using it more and more with my underwater shots, but again I don't really recommend it to those who don't already know lots about repro color)
4. Add copyright with obligitory overuse of photoshop effects and filters. (you haven't done a good days work if you haven't used your photoshop drop shadow filter at least one time)
