An excellent description on the selecting photographs for display or presentation.

This is the edited photo. In the iner circel from the flash was all information gone, and it had to be replaced, with new information. I used the cloning stamp to continue the lines in the mountains in to the destroyed part. The clone stamp and healing brush was also used to replace the other parts that was destroyed by the flash. Over the buildings I used layers to darken the buildings. I used different layers because it was different need of editing in different places of the picture. I made the roofs of the building ekstra dark to get more contrast on the picture. I also used layers, to make the colors better I adjusted the contrast. You can still see some of the damages from the flash, but i looks much better.

Here is the photo before...
I used the clone stamp to take out the date and the red streak in the ice peice. I also used "text dance" by using the magnetic lasso tool and making a selection aroudn the ice peice. Then I made a work path under the path's menu.
This was my original photo - and for the edited version I used the auto contrast/color feature. Then I used the clone stamp on the dots out in the water (I found them distracting). I then selected all the water and mountains in the background and blurred them by 3% to get rid of the 'grainy' purple dots in the photo. Lastly I used the dodge/burn tool to highlight the sand on the shore. In the end I came out with this:

This is my original photo. This was taken at arctic man this last year. As you can see the people are blurry, the camera was held at an angle so you can tell the picture is tilted.
Here I cleaned up the photo. I first adjusted the curves. Then I played with the color a little bit. I used the measure tool and ran it along the top of the motorhome. I used the rotate canvas arbitrary to straighten the photo. I then cropped the photo, removing the people and the motorhome. I reduced the noise in the photo then sharpened.

With some adjusting of the levels and some dodging of the darker areas of the image (me, the car and the shadows of these two), I was able to bring out the brightness of that day.
Added dark vignetting around the corners to give it more substance.
I used specific filters to give it the snowboarding-style grungy effect.

If you want to be an expert on sharpening this is the book! Sigh.......Steve
Here I posturized it to give it a 'surreal' feeling.
This one I played around with highlighting and shadow levels untill I could make the path white.
And this one I wanted to make darker, and the light overhead stand out more, so I went to black and white.
The first edited picture is freshed up with use of levels, and Neutral point function.
The next picture is edited, so it looks like it is taken widt flash in the evening. I have used magnetic tool too cut out the bird and then invert the place where the bird is the layer. I have put on a dark filter in the background and a light filter over the bird.
I wanted the last picture to look colder. I used a cooling photo filter to make it look cold.
This picture is to use for printing to show the nice color and the nice squirrel in Denali. I want to have a colorfull picture with contrast. The eye always seek to the squirrel and you never get tired of look at the picture. Print in big size - and put it on the wall. Here I use Hue/Saturation and after that some extra contrast, and adjust the brightness a little.
This picture is edited to get focus on the squirrel, and the use is to write facts about the animal. I used the blur-tool in Photoshop CS2, and blur all the other element outside of the squirrel to get the squirrel in focus. I also added some warm photofilter.
This picture is in black/white, and I want to use it for printing and give it to people who do not see color. In that way I can get a cheap printing :) I used Image/Mode/Grayscale and then adjust a little with levels in Photoshop CS2

This was my original photo.
I tried to make this picture feel colder as well make it seem like it was later in the day by using a lot of blue. I did this by changing the levels of this picture. I then adjusted the color adding a little more blue. I then adjusted the hue and saturation until I got a photo that I liked
I wanted this picture to feel warm so you would think it was taken just after sun rise. I did this by changing the color balance and then I sharpened the picture.
I wanted to make one photo that didn't seem real. For this I played around with the curves of the photo. Using the curves option is one of the best ways to change your photo because you can play around with the line on the graph and keep changing how the picture will turn out. You can also make multiple points to get really interesting effects.

First I cropped the picture and removed the white edges. I used the Curves tool for color corrections to remove the yellow hue and bring out more contrast and shadows of the rocks. I set the shadow color and entered values to set RGB, highlights, and midtones. The pictures color is still blown out in portions from the sunlight. I used layers, the laso tool and the clone stamp tool to try and recaputure the rocks texture. I removed the camera case with the Erase tool.

This picture was enhanced with the shadow/highlight feature.
This picture was enhanced with "dancing letters."
This picture was enhanced with the black and white feature as well as some added layers of some other pics that were taken that same night.
