    I took a bazillion pics at my neice's birthday party, but I wanted to try out some of the things on phidong.com with this one.

    Here is the original:

    Here is after some level work:

    *EDIT* After some contrast and sharpness work:

    *EDIT AGAIN* - holy noise...I was changing the ISO around to try to keep the shutter speeds fast enough to keep up with her, so I must have had it pretty high for that one. Wish EXIF data showed ISO values...would help me learn...

    Please realize (if you haven't already) that I don't know what I'm doing. What is the point of post-processing? More 'true' colors? Brighter colors? I just kinda did what looked ok...but obviously I'd love some constructive feedback on what I can do better.

    I'd add a bit more contrast and sharpness to the photo.
