does the editing do justice to the photo, and is it too dark

A very dramatic image! My answers to your questions would be"no" and "yes" as I think there is more than a hint of blue and it is rather dark. I would crop some off the top to remove the burnt out sun which brings the horizon nicely onto a third. These are only my personal opinions and it is an attractive shot as presented.

What editing did you do? Did you make it blue in post processing, and how?

Best to know this before I comment.

Thanks for the info Pete, no problem.


I like how Geoff has cropped this. I have used something similar, however I tried to restore it to what it might have looked like, - partly photoshop, partly guesswork.

I have uploaded a mod so you can see it looks a lot less blue. I have also cropped out the larger tree on the right. So its brighter, and less blue.

If you have photoshop, - theres a hidden trick for quickly checking for a colour cast. It will apply a change to any cast you have deliberately put there, so use with caution. Make a layer copy. Then Image>adjustments>Match colour. In the dialogue box, click Neutralise. You can vary the amount with the slider.


regards


Willie

I would crop right down to the top of the right tree. The sky is far too bright and such a heavy crop lifts the pleasant foreground scene significantly. The blue is quite effective but can hardly be natural.

hi there, both of the mods are good options, i dont take many landscape photos as i am disabled and dont always find it very easy to get out and about, but i am trying to broaden my range of photography.
