It’s always a good idea to copyright your work and a good way of doing so, is to embed your copyright information into your image metadata. To do so, Press Ctrl Alt Shift I (Mac: Command Option Shift I) or go to File > File Info... to bring up the File Info panel. Then click on the "Description" tab and enter your copyright information on the appropriate fields.
Editing photos with Curves: BloggerPhotographer says: I don’t know about you, but if I could only use one tool in photoshop for the rest of my life, it would be Curves. It can do so much! Not only can it lighten up your images, but it can make your colors and contrast pop by making an S curve. To do that, just add a second point in the curves window, and drag it down a bit. This is pictured here.
I like option 5 here, as it would look great in contrast to the lack of colours in a winter landscape. Dark denim pants or khakis would go well with this, or a combination of those on different people. THIS IS MY FAVOURITE SO FAR.
