Hey guys... having a bit of a annoyance with CS3...

Im just playing around with the Levels on this photo (am total CS newbie) and Im trying to bring out the hills in the mid-ground in this photo but for some real they keep there ghostly apperance no matter what I do.. tried Contrast, Levels, Dodge/Burn..



Can someone point me in the right direction of what I need to adjust? I've got the main PSD on my laptop and would rather do it myself.... just need some hints..

Thanks for ya help

I'd probably use a layer mask & adjust the curves/points.

Well, deepmedia, you and I don't agree on much, but BINGO this time around.

I might try a curves adjustment level instead. It works a lot better for midrages than levels. You probably will still have to use a mask to get it perfect.

Do you have a copy of the original? There are a lot of different options here.

edit: opened the version you put up here in Photoshop quickly. I'd start by making a duplicate layer (command J) and switching the blending mode to 'screen'. From there adjust the opacity on the top layer to what seems appropriate and mask as is appropriate.

If you're losing too much detail in the blacks, you could probably copy your red channel to paste over the image and switch the blending mode to soft light. From there just make a curves adjustment for that layer and again, adjust opacity and create masks as needed.

Good idea too.
