And here we go with the second challenge! And in this challenge I want you to open and evaluate the Christina Gallery image and use your eye, your histogram, and your info tools. Be sure to take a look at both any color casts that might exist. And look at the tonal distribution as well. And look for critical or key portions of the image that you want to focus your attention on. Then after you feel like you've properly evaluated your image in terms of the color and tone, go ahead and make your color correction adjustment.
Remember, those are always first, then followed by the tones. Then make any highlight adjustments that you think are necessary, any shadow adjustments. And then when you had the major portion of the correction accomplished, then take a look and see if you'd like to fine-tune brightness and contrast adjustments. It should be a lot of fun for you. Think it's going to be interesting. Take about 20 or 30 minutes to do this. I think you should be able to accomplish it in that period of time. And then when you get done with your evaluation and adjustment, go ahead and take a look at my solution, and see how we compare.
