Hi Billy,

A nice capture of a Harbour scene. I like the wall on the left as it act's as a barrier to stop your eye leaving the image and I like the fact that you saw the potentail in capturing the stormy sky as a background to the busy forground interest.
I know i've explained to you how to use "Overlay" which is all i've used in the mod but i've then erased the effect from the stone wall, right forground (walk) and boats leaving the effect to the sky and water. I have not reduced the opacity on this image as I wanted you to see what the full effect to the water like.

Take care

Martin

Martin has quite eloquently summed up it in an array of both layman's terms and technical jargon. Its wonderful to read the comments and hopeful pick up on what you may have not even thought about. I do this quite a lot. In summary a lovely image that needs some work to make it really special.

Hope you find the time to carry out the modifications, I look forwards to seeing the final outcome.

Regards Nathan

Hi Billy. This is quite a nice shot, just a little dull overall. Might be due to how youve altered the sky.

I would suggest that your original shot needs just a small amount of correction, rather than anything dramatic, as it has a nice evening light tone that you would want to keep; and the colours are saturated just enough.

Ive loaded a mod, - and, not knowing your level of photoshop skill, or which version you have, Ive attached a link to the method I use, which is usually very accurate in not only correcting colour casts, but exposure.


here it is: http://www.dpchallenge.com/tutorial.php?TUTORIAL_ID=24



Loaded a mod using this method.


regards

Just wondering Billy, - did you mean to leave the white line at the bottom? Its removed anyway in the mods.
