Red Squirrel (Three Photographs)

This Red Squirrel as one would expect is curious and cautious. Nothing special done in post-processing, though photos taken in this kind of light tend be a little flat and some contrast and color boost helps. I recall a blind photo review I watched a few years back. The moderator rejected photographs for lack of contrast, and ended up going into a diatribe on Levels adjustments and Tone curves. Today it is much easier to use contrast and tone curves in most programs and there are fewer excuses for flat and/or washed-out photographs. In fact I used the Levels adjustment on these photos and it quickly struck me that I should be checking the Levels Adjustment panel in all my photographs to make sure my contrast/color is where I want it to be.

  4. I can see that it could be difficult to get a lot of contrast on an animal whose coloring is designed to blend in with its surroundings and avoid contrast.
