Hi eos550D,

I'll move this post to our software section as it concerns use of software.

I have a copy of Martin Evening's Adobe Photoshop for Photographers which covers a lot of ground on the subject of your question - highly recommended! Here's a link the a flip book. Don't forget our affiliate stores should you wish to purchase a copy.

Bob.

It does indeed look a bit soft, but I'm not sure how much of that is poor focus and perhaps a soft lens. I work mostly in Lightroom, but in photoshop you can apply some sharpening (in Filters), and also create a new layer, set it to overlay, and use a high pass filter to get a "pop" effect. Doesn't work too well with portraits though

Hi eos550D,

Every person is different and everyone has their own "style" and "taste". When I looked at your image, I felt it would benefit from some increased highlight and midtone contrast, combined with some selective brightening and some whitening of the ambient light. But that's just me - other may edit it completely different.

Here's a quick edit I did for illustration purposes - I hope you don't mind. I will remove it again if you do, of course :-)

PS: only edited the small JPG file).
