    A 5-minute quick fix:

    Levels adjusted and some cropping.. Wanted a square crop but there wasn't enough material to work with. Done in GIMP.


    Here's roughly a square crop. A little bit more of the sky would have allowed me to have more of the sides to include the ship and more of the light reflection on the water and less of the sand below the slippers and still maintain the square aspect ratio. This one below is too tight for my liking but it's just a demonstration of what a square crop can do to the mood of the picture.

    Yeah.. But a little too tight. Square crop doesn't work everywhere and I happen to see that it may work for this shot.

    The original one may turn out nicer on photo. The Edited one may look very digital on print out. On digital screen, it may look nicer. Again matter of preference

    Hey germ_boi, glad you are having fun photoshopping but there's a lot more you can do in photoshop than just adjusting colours...

    Here's what I did to your photo, makes more sense to make it a panorama seeing how the mother looks off into the left. Added a fake sun to give it more "drama-mama" effect, adjusted the tone to feel warmer, got rid of the slippers, etc etc...



    Hope you guys like it...

    Doesn't it look a little too repetitive in the middle part? But I'd have to admit it's a fabulous piece of work reconstructing what's not there.. I'm having quite a hard time trying to see what you used to create the whole of the left portion.

    With regard to wad +evenstar had stated, Wad i simply mean is touching up the photos......for e.g. adjusting the contrast and the brightness.... to make it better looking

    If a particular shot is really that crappy, as what u had mentioned, and there is actually no way of saving it....i see no point touching up that particular shot....must as well delete it away.

    But if there is still a chance of saving a spoilt photo thru using the photoshop CS, why not??

    That is my own point of view.....

    Before

    After

    I feel that the slippers add depth to the picture. I up the exposure, use warming filter and remove lens blur.

    I thought photography is capturing things as we see it not changing things.
