PR shots: US Marine Corps Band, Twentynine Palms, CA

The USMC Band at Twentynine Palms, CA had some photos taken at an international tatoo, the quality of which was disappointing to the band's commanding officer (please mouseover image for original). I was asked to enhance these photos to be used for presentation and public relations media. The photos were first adjusted, correcting color and exposure, then enhanced with some patriotic additions.

• Techniques utilized included levels, hue and saturation, dodge and burn, USM, layers, polygonal lasso, transparency and text effects.
