About the Image(s)

For the past week Chicago has been snowed in. I have 11 inches of base snow and daily dusting of 2 or more inches. My Internet is still down so I can not use my laptop for Photo Shop for resizing and more detailed post processing. Using my I-phone crop and some adjustments.

A nice nature shot. The image is sharp. I think a little more corrections are needed for this image. The animal is a little dark after post processing. May be a little adjustment of shadows can improve this. Do you have Snapseed software in your mobile? If not use it for editing the mobile images in mobile itself.   Posted: 02/20/2021 00:30:23

There is a Photoshop Express for iPhones with highlights and shadows adjustments. The image could use some shadows brightening. Otherwise a great photo.   Posted: 02/20/2021 09:27:23

You got a wonderful photo of the bear. He looks afraid and elicits sympathy. As Mohanan showed, lightening the shadows in your crop will make a big difference. And now you know 2 mobile editing programs you can use. Although the background is lovely, I would crop to put the bear more on one side or the other, rather than so close to the center. The "rule" of thirds is just a suggestion, but it generally makes a composition much more pleasing.   Posted: 02/20/2021 11:42:03

Yes I have Snapseed so I will give it a try next month.

Thanks for all the input.   Posted: 02/20/2021 12:45:46

Kathleen, love the fact that this little guy, like many of us, is hanging on for dear life! I do think the shadow adjustments suggested really enhance this image. I could not help resist changing the clop and blurring the background a bit. To me, it helps give us some perspective on the size/ elements of the world he is dealing with.   Posted: 02/23/2021 15:11:46

Cute bear!

It's good enough image for mobile. Perhaps there was some zoom and not very good light. So the mobile has also increased it's ISO and lost some sharpness.
