Hi Guys,

Another from my Cornwall trip, decided to move away from the Bedruthan shots (for now) as I am bored with them. . . so god knows what the site must think?

This was taken about 15 mins before sunset at Chapel Porth, Wheal Coates and is a shot of the Towanroath Pumping Engine House built in 1872, down by the puddle in this image is a capped shaft that drops to over 600ft.

Thanks for looking and previous clicks and comments!

Enjoy your weekend Smile

Regards
Tim

Lovely scene, Tim and well-captured but it's a tiny bit over-saturated imho.

I'm with Alun on this one Tim - need to take down the greens and blues a tad and you'll have it spot on!

Superb photo, but agree with the saturation, however it is effective and vibrant.

Thanks for the feedback guys! It was inadvertently a test upload... instinct told me I had overdone the saturation, but liked it all the same Smile ... but I am glad you all commented to say so, because now I know and have learnt something! so many thanks! Tongue

Many thanks for the feedback.... hopefully tomorrows 'different' upload may prove more colour balanced.

Hopefully you are sober enough to take this in now Tim Wink

If you go to View and then Gamut Warning in Photoshop (Shift+Ctrl+Y) you will be able to see the areas that are over saturated - they will be hi-lighted in grey. Then you need to add a Hue/Saturation Layer - Click on the small pointed finger icon next to master and your picker should turn into an eye dropper. Click on the image in the grey area and "master" box should change to the colour that is oversaturated ie. if you are in the sky area it will be the blues. Then all you have to do is reduce the saturation until all of the grey disappears. You may have to do this a few times in different areas of the image, as it's the yellows that are boosting your greens. As you've done it on an adjustment layer you can then adjust the opacity if you think things have become too desaturated.

Hope this helps

V1 works for me. I think the colours, even over-saturated, gives this image an painting-like air.
