Ok, not sure about this one. Im colour blind, and I promise I have not messed with colour on this shot, but i'm not sure if it looks off, colour wise.

All I have done, is adjust the brightness and contrast, about 10% colour saturation, added a gradient mask dark at the top, white at the bottom, set to overlay, and reduced to about 50%. I then erased the white half of the mask, as it was making the foreground a little too bright, adjusted the levels a little more. Sharpened, and resized.

Now, i dont ever go near colour settings, as I cant tell when and if I go too far.

Have I overdone the colour, or does it look ok?

All comments are welcome.

Trust me, I have 100% accurate colour vision (unusual but true) and these colours are fantastic. Lovely, lovely shot.
