I shot some photos at an event two wks ago in Dana Point. Low light, it was overcast skies all day long. Just looking for comments on how to better the picture. So give me all your comments. Feel free to edit and show me your finished pic.

Oh..It was a bubble gum blowing contest!

    Changed white balance with levels probe.
    Upped contrast and saturation a little.
    Cropped a little with some cloning on the background.

    What do you think?

    BTW nice shot.

    Cloning is a tool in Photoshop that basically allows one to paint over one part of the picture using another part as the 'source' for the brush. It is kind of like copying one part of the picture to another using a brush. I hope this makes sense.

    tmlphoto: makes plenty of sense. the pic looks good.

    lynnma: I use photoshop elements 2.0. I also have ImageMixer version 1.5 but I don't really even touch that for some reason. Im pretty stuck on photoshop.
