Re: Stuck like Chuck

gave it a try---used a sepia filter and then a new layer filled with 50% gray/overlay mode painted with black and white

Re: Stuck like Chuck

I used a plugin called colorwasher. removed the blue colorcast and enhanced the shadows.

Re: Stuck like Chuck

mistermonday, I did have the WB improperly set and discovered it only after the first day. Considering that I have a whole day's worth of pictures with this blue cast, I'm hoping the Picto's or the colorcast plugin, mentioned by unimatrix001, will save me some time.

Thanks for your effort falem. Did you take a stab at the blue cast on the hills in the background? the blue color cast remains on my end.

chase, I like the shadowing on your image. I may try to add a little of that as well.

I hope to tackle this picture tomorrow and call it a day. Again, I appreciate all of the perspectives and effort here.

I added more pictures to share some of what we saw, while on vacation. I'd like to revisit this place and can only hope my picture taking abilities are much better next time.

A few Ouray Co. Pictures

You might want to download Lightroom 3 beta. It's free and usable thru April 2010. In it you can make adjustments to one image and then sync those adjustments across any number of images.

So if your day's take all has a similar cast all you'd need to do it is use the white balance eye dropper and apply it to a neutral in your image (perhaps the gray foam on the roll bar) and this will neutralize your color cast. Then adjust expose, contrast, saturation, clarity, sharpening, etc to suit, and then sync all those adjustments across the entire days take with the click of a button.

Re: Stuck like Chuck

Hey all,

This is my first post in the forum.

I tried out a few techniques I learned from Dan Margulis's courses on color/contrast on KelbyTraining.com.

Here's what I came up with...seems the WB setting really did a number on the sky.

Oh well, I would definitely check out his classes...I think you'd like what they do for landscape photos.
