Today I continued working on chapter 27 of the Photoshop CC One-on-One: Advanced course on Lynda.com.

The first thing I did was go to the file pull down menu and chose browse in bridge. I opened the photo in camera raw by pressing cmd+r. I went to the basic panel and clicked the panel fly out menu and chose camera raw defaults. This brought the image back to how it was originally captured.

After I got the photo back to its original look, I went to the basic panel and moved the exposure slider to reach a value of 2.00 and the whites value to -100. I moved the blacks slider to a value to -10, the highlights to -100, and the shadows slider to 100. I selected the white balance tool and clicked the top white part of one of the boats in the image which gave me a temperature value of 2750 and a tint value of -17.

I went to lens correction, chose manual, and moved the horizontal slider to a value of 8. I changed the vertical slider value to -2 and the distortion slider to a value of -2.
