Another trip to the mailbox and a stop at my neighbors house, her cats will be a common subject as the weather gets nicer. It was a drab overcast day and I was disappointed with the original picture. No sun, no oomph, so I worked some photoshop magic.
Photoshop CS2 Notes: Regular adjustment layers with smart sharpen, then went in and decreased the lighting, bumped up the contrast, and added a warming filter. What a difference! After adding some additional sharpening on the face and whiskers and I was happy.
