    What a terrific, vibrant photo Rich. So much more inviting than the US version.

  3. Thanks! And the people who work there don't duck behind a stack of merchandise if they happen to make eye contact with you.

    :p

    Great color Rich. What work did you do to get the yellows and reds so vibrant, yet perfectly natural looking?
     
  8. I brought in in NC. The color adjustment which did such a good job was the color booster. I selected "nature" and just worked the slider with the arrows till it seemed well balanced. Of course that was after setting the white point and balancing the histogram to just kiss the ends.

    Gosh, it's only taken 10-15000 images and Im finally starting to be able to detect color casts.... and contrast balance. Kinda frightening!

    Sometimes when I stare at an image I seem to get mesmerised (color-wise). Now as a check I look away and sort of "glance" at the whole picture. Gordon was helping me with that blue fishing boat which just didn't "pop." While going through it again from NEF I discovered the value of looking away for a second. Bam! I could see the blue cast.

    Man this is a great site!

    Just don't tell anyone else...just kidding.

    You know Rich, I was just thinking the same thing today. Patrick and I absolutely never expected the Café to become this. I am actually finding or learning several new things every day.

    Kinda neat, huh??

    :p
