Photo Needs Serious Makeover/ Enhancement - Help!

Hello everyone,

can you enhance this low quality photo? It is kindda dull and the male subject isn't standing out in it. Perhaps even a background change.

Give it your best shot and feel free to go crazy if you would, so as long as you are satisfied with the end result.

Thanks!

I am sure many here would be willing to offer you some help i.e. to help you enhance the photo. Tell us what software you will be using and your skill level and ideas for the image and you are bound to get assistance.

I cannot speak for other forum members but my answer would be No! unless you are prepared to at least try yourself.
Read the forum faqs first:
Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me? No. This is a site for learning, and we will gladly help you learn to do it yourself. We have a "Image Help" forum just for that purpose. Click on "Forums" on the navbar to get there. There is also a "Classifieds" forum if you're willing to pay one of our members to work on your photo.

Dude needs to button his shirt at the very least... ;-) I agree with your assessment of the background and dull lighting. The background needs to go, totally, since it's so blown out and unattractive anyway, and the shadowy ambient lighting on the subject needs to be popped.

Otherwise, it's a decent pose.

Welcome to RetouchPRO
I am not a pro (as most can tell) but had to have a go at this pic because of Plugs first statement.. good luck finding someone to do it for you... maybe they will do it for the rights to put it into their portfolios, who knows..

You said, "feel free to go crazy," Soooo
