Description: I started with the Levels layer. Dragged the black tab to the right to add a little darkness to the whole photo and to hopefully make parts of the turtle less "hot". The inputs now read 23-1.00-255. Then I added a Brightness/contrast layer. Slightly tweaked the brightness to be -9 and +3 on the contrast. Then I added a hue/saturation layer and went -14 saturation. Lastly, I added a photo filter layer. I used the cooling filter #80 at 20% density. My goal with that was to slightly cool off (or add a bluish tone) to Mr. Turtle. Last step was cropping him a little and the Voila... new image. I like this one much better tan the original as I feel I can now see much more of the detail in the turtles nose, chin, eyes, etc.
