    I took a few photos of my next door neighbour this afternoon and like the complete pillock I am didn't realise that the camera was in the wrong mode (partial manual mode). I took a few pics of him next to his pride and joy runner beans as he wants to show them to the blokes down the pub. I can't really ask him to pose for any more as he's quite frail these days.
    I've attached a small version of the file - if anyone thinks they can do anything could they either advise me how to do it in photoshop or can I email them the full sized one
    Cheers.
    P.S. Yes they are just snapshots ;) :D

    It's the sky john, what some people do is take two shots one shot for the sky and another for the main subject and merge the two. But then you dont have two of course, some of the lads are bang on with PS

    I'm not one of them.

    :rotfl: nice one. I feel really annoyed with myself for not checking the camera before I took the photos, the exposure is way out and there was a really nice blue sky. If nobody can come up with anything I might just try and darken it a little - he won't be too fussy about it anyway.

    Hi John,

    Had a try for you, but really tricky to claw back detail.

    That looks quite reasonable mate, but the kite was a different shape :D
