Thank you Frank this boat was going out to the maidens lighthouse,it was taking some men out to work there.they had there camera's with them to get some sunset's
but it was a very bad weekend
I think that there's a really good shot in there, it just needs a little help!
This looks very blue, which is causing it (I think) to look a little flat.
I've uploaded a mod., in which I've tried to 'unblue' it a bit using, firstly the colour balance tool and then reducing the blue channel in curves.
I also used threshold curves to increase the contrast (possibly a little too much), all of which in turn has made the orange stronger.
Finally, I sharpened it slightly.
I'm sure that there's a still better result to be had from this.
All done using CS5.
Hope this helps.
. . . I knew that I could do better!
Please see new mod.
The third mod is the best image. Your original is a little flat and needs some sharpening. You give us no details, so it is difficult to be sure, but i assume the long end of a fairly long lens? hence contrast loss and a bit of softness.
thanks to everyone i am really pleased about your input .i am trying to learn elements 10 and how to take a nice photo.
many thanks Billy
The trick with this one William is that the far background needed a circular polarizer fitted to the lens to reduce glare, increase contrast and colour.
The near image is the boat is decent, though you should sharpen before you upload.
In solving this in post processing, you need in fact to look at the far bank as a separate image to the sea and boat, and treat each one differently.
Ive done this is the mod. It looks similar, but a little different to Brens, due to the different treatment of each area. Ive also reduced saturation, which was a little high.
