Very nice sky, but why do the colours look slightly washed out?

Thanks for viewing, n86m :). It is probably because my PP skills suck. Still learning how to PP my shots. If you got tips to share, I would welcome them greatly!! :)

:dunno: Hard to tell though, might be mist. Was there mist?

Landscaperies don't really need much PP, else they tend to look a tad surreal/out-of-this-world, depending on the extent to which you push the colours. Perhaps you could provide one of the original outputs before PS so we can get a better idea. You are very lucky to get such a good sky! But then everytime I'm overseas the sky is also very nice. :bsmilie:

Love #9!

Here's my take, thanks for letting me play.. =D



Have emailed the edited one back to ya with yousendit too, let me know what you think, and if you want me to take down this version can say so too, no problem.

Workflow was -
1. highlights/shadows
2. warming filter 30% thereabouts
3. color balance
4. slight contrasting and brightness adjustments

:think: I would push up the sharpening slightly and reduce jpg compression.

Err... i didn't do any sharpening of the shots, other than the pano in #10. Perhaps its because of longer exposure time (sunset shots were taken at F/22) causing the clouds to be 'blur' :confused:

Tell me what you saw.

well, basically they all have some good detail for you to squeeze out using sharpening (the sand/clouds/log... etc)

lower compression is to make sure those details are not lost when saved.
