I got this shot from TCGirl, her daughter had shot it with cameraphone. I quite like it, love the super-relaxedness of the cat, but maybe there was finger prints on the lens, cuz it's hazy. So I decided to do what I could do with it. I used Snapseed app on iPad (due to my M.E. which keeps me in bed much of the time, an iPad on a floor stand is a blessing for me; I've actually realized that it has become my main computer de facto.).
So I increased contrast and sharpness, etc, and you see the result in picture number Two, no longer washed out.
Then I decided to try the "Glamour Glow" filter which I'd used sometimes to help poor skin on models on Domai. (Typical: I paid like $130 for the suite to get the filter on the Mac, on the iPad it's included in a three-dollar editor.)
Result: it reaches out much more, it's more three-dimensional, it's "glowing", vibrant... Compared to it, the middle version looks weird, flat.
But is it a bit too "pop"? (Clicking to see them full size helps.)
