RRS Discovery

RRS DiscoveryWhat a lovely capture!! if I were you I would make use of Shadows/Highlights to get some more details from the nearside of the image... try these settings and see if you like it or you can toggle around these figures starting from the top.. 35,34,63, 0,50,30, +20 and +14 leave the rest as is.

Mid Flight Red Kite

Mid Flight Red KiteI think I agree with digicammad, though it is a lovely image it looks flat, here is what I have done after reading the comment above, please click this link to see how and what I did.... hope this helps.
To see 720p HD video after clicking the link, simply click on 240p and select 720p HD from the list and hit play, then click on next pop up box which will bring video box out and then click Full screen (four arrow) sign to view in full screen.

OrmskirkWow! so perspective in deed! excellent image. I noticed blue color cast that's all, may be because of blue sky!! but that can be remove so easily once opened in PS duplicate image > go to filter > Blur > Average (which will make image completely blue) then select original image and select Curve from Layer palette, once open select middle color sampler and click once in duplicate image (which is completely blue) now see the difference ... a specially the road, of course you can make further fine tuning from the Curce if you wish. Hope this helps.

Bright lights, Big city

Bright lights, Big cityIn deed! brilliant work... rather hard work! If I were you, I will bring some hidden details out by opening image in to PS then go to Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights > and then alter all figyres as follow starting from the top:
48,49,98, 22,50,30, +3 and +4 click OK if you are happy and see the diffrence. If you like upper part of sky darker then make sure you duplicate layer before you beggin and at the end simply select soft brush then click add layer Mask next to the top layer then brush over the sky you like darker ( make sure you have black as forgeground colour while brushing over ). At the end go to Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask and then change Amount to 24, Radius to 93.7 and Threshold to 3 then hit OK Done. Hope this helps.

The Bass Man II

The Bass Man IIIn my opinion it is a fantastic portrait, though you can remove that reflection easily within 5 minutes the most by using spot healing and Clone tool. Also you can bring more details if you do the following in PS... Once image is opened in PS simply go to Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights and then alter all figures starting from th top in the box as follow... 45, 47, 69, 0, 50, 30, +8 and +10 that's it. Have a look the difference by clicking preview. Hope this helps in future.
