The Lesson

The original photograph




From the outset, this probably wasn't the best example picture. The light shining in from behind the subject affects all the examples. Having said that, of all of the examples, I believe that the second histogram adjustment is the picture I like the best. I then went back to the last lessons on brightness and found that the Curves adjustment made the best picture of all. I tried combining both lessons, but wasn't able to come up with any improvements over the Curves adjustment.
