Colour Enhancing

I took this photo while out for a walk down a local river, but I didn't like how dark it came out. I decided to correct this, and the colours in Photoshop CS4 by doing the following:

  • Opened in Photoshop CS4
  • Auto toned it
  • Made it slightly lighter by uping the levels and curves
  • Increased saturation to +26
  • Went to color balance and increased the green to +8 to bring out the grass even more
  • Dodged some of the whites and grass on midtones 37% exposure
  • Burned some of the darks on 13% midtones exposure
  • Increased contrast by 8
  • Saved a larger edited JPEG version
  • Renamed to "cow"
  • Saved another "cow_smaller" version at 72DPI for my blog

This is how it came out:
