ETA: Extra-stylized version here, which is less subtle but still lots of fun.

Some of you may think that [livejournal.com profile] kylecassidy is the best photographer in this house. Well, you're probably right. However! Now that [livejournal.com profile] philforrest has moved out and assuming [livejournal.com profile] trillian_stars and [livejournal.com profile] whafford don't have any hidden photography talents (and if they do, I'd thank them to keep it to themselves), I have a good chance at being at least the second-best*. Plus as I used to edit photos for a living, I know my way around Photoshop, at least a little.

Look! Turtles!



So you see here I kicked up the contrast, punched up the yellow highlights and blue shadows, then did a very subtle "spotlight" burn to focus the eye on the cranky, cranky face. I came close to making it look like it was taken in artificial light by making the light too white, but I think punching the contrast as much as I did really brings out the depth in the wrinkles of the shell.

Here the changes are more obvious -- big kick in the contrast, big bump in overall color saturation and I nudged the yellow and green highlights, plus a big ol' not-as-subtle spotlight burn.

unedited version, plus an alternate edit )

What do you think?

*Maybe third**.

**OK, OK, possibly fourth.
