    hi Stoned,

    did some enhancements to your photos. In particular, I like the Celestial Transport .. very humorous of you


    Did some burning in for you. You are using film right? If you are, after scanning in, you still have to do a little sharpening

    for "Celestial Transport"

    - always work on a new copy (CTRL+J) for Win or (Apple sign+J) for MAC
    - play with CURVES 1st to bring the highlights down as your orig is overexp
    - Increase the contrast very slightly
    - Burn tools to saturate and deepen the colors of darker areas
    - Unsharpen mask

    for "Ginseng"

    - always work on a new copy (CTRL+J) for Win or (Apple sign+J) for MAC
    - play with Contrast to +9
    - Burn tool to burn in the shadows and darker areas
    - adjusted the levels a little to bring back some of the lighter shade details lost during contrast adjustments
    - Unsharpen mask

    Well... after a while you should be able to tell if it's film or digital lah... besides, the pics looked film-like (latitude I guess) and your avatar showed you with a film cam
