|This picture is over exposed about 1 and half stop. A stop is a scale of exposure value. Increasing a f4 to a f2.8 is a "stop" You've got now twice the amount of light getting in to the sensor. |
Now if we look at this scene, you might think, which area, sould be at the right exposure. What you see as Highlight should be in fact Darker and revealing details, and the rest on the scene should be considered under exposed.
This workshop is about, right exposure.
So first , I decreased drasticly luminosity in the middle tones, using level, then using the Highlights/Shadows tools, found on photoshopCS3, I've raise details in the Highlights.
Did a small colour correction, adding red and a touch of green.
