First I'm not a photoshop user. I have an old version I use to make rudimentary adjustments.

What I want to do is far beyond my abilities.

I took this picture the other day. What I would like is the following.

Lighten up and bring out the pine trees on the left. Then the hill across the lake was in very bright colors. But they didn't come out in the pic. So bring out the vibrant colors.

This is a JPG of the photo. I shot it with a Nikon 3100 and have the raw file if needed.

So can any one give this old man a hand with post processing?

Thanks

Thanks for the help.

The file is on it's way.

you really need to bracket a shot like that to build a multi variable contrast composite

Or just shoot raw and expose to the right.

Everything else can be done in LR/PS.

ETA, just don't clip the highlights.

I was amazed that someone hadn't put Lootie into the pic by now, then realized this isn't GD.
