Does it look too dark (the colors--not the subject matter)?
p.s. a jpeg version always looks a little drab, doesn't it? I'm trying a tiff for the 2nd image....
...and it still looks totally blown out. Hmmph. The PDF I saved looks OK on my computer screen, but I don't think Blogger displays PDF's, does it?
(UPDATED AGAIN) I took yr advices, Ellis and Jimmy (via phone)...I think this is better, but there is some kind of gamma loss...or something?
(Updated AGAIN. Sorry, I just wanted to see the three stages all together. This is the one I'm turning in. I met Joe Sanabria for lunch and he looked at this and gave me about ONE MILLION great Photoshop tips for correcting my color problems and improving my image. And all for the price of a coffee. Thanks Joe!)
