Absolutely. I'm a commercial photographer whom uses PS every day. PS has a lot of mis conceptions. Simply, the better the initial image, the MORE useful PS is. Period. It's ot a magic solution to anything.
And no, you image has all sorts of electronic noise, and banding. Nothing going to turn that into "photograph".
Listen to PVD. He knows what he's talking about. The first step is getting a good opportunity to get a good photo and then recognizing when you have a photo worth saving. In that shot, you're just in a bad location with bad lighting so you never had a chance (foreground in the shadows an background in the sun).pvd said:Photoshop is just a tool for working with images.

That picture is junk for more reasons than just image quality. Poor camera location, timing, composition, almost everything is lame.
Rather than waste time fixing this image. Take some time learning about how to take a better picture and hit the trail with the boys & girls with the goal of getting some good shots. You will then get some images worth spending time on.
No save needed. The landing has a steep tranny and the rider matched it perfectly and landed smoothly. The rider btw landed stunts like these like a pro all day long. I don't think you can air that jump too much as the landing immediately joins the main trail which runs perpendicular to it. If you've ridden Boondocks at N*, you'll know what I'm talking about.bstyle74 said:forget the picture.... did the rider save the landing? looks like he's nose-heavy and has the seat pretty high!
