Tiger, Tiger

Evening People,

I got a small problem with 2 images of tigers, as you will see there is a light streak down the centre of both images from the bars on the enclosure.
Can anyone give me a heads up on a way I can get some contrast into this centre area please?

John

Re: Tiger, Tiger

You may want to try painting a soft edge mask over parts of the image and applying to a curves adjustment layer. I also added an overall curve layer to adjust contrast to something I liked YMMV

Attached example before and after and mask.

Hope it helps

Re: Tiger, Tiger

Just my opinion FWIW.

Two things, first the crop is unbalanced and I would want to crop the right side of the image quite a lot.

I would also like to see the low contrast on the tigers left side (image right) corrected by another application of curves with mask.

Example images attached wait a few seconds for the first image to change. Second is a rough idea of how I may want to crop.

Re: Tiger, Tiger

Thanks again Tony,

Got your point and agree....

As for the crop....I agree with that as well, but it's not my image to crop down :o)
