Edited Image:

Process:

I took the original image and edited it to the appropriate size in Photoshop, and since it was already a large enough photo it did not have any affect on the quality. I also brightened up the exposure, and lowered the shadows (it may look a little bright on your screen, but will not look so bright when printed) so that the image did not appear too dark when printed. I adjusted the yellows in the pine needles to appear more green with a selective color adjustment layer. I also used a selective color adjustment to make the whites more white rather than a musty gray. I the smart sharpen tool on a copy of all of the layers and then used a mask to show only the sharpening on the sharp parts of the photo. Lastly I saved the photo as a high quality JPEG and took it to Quick Ship n’ Copy to have it printed.
