That's it...it's not funny anymore!!! Mother Nature, please stop the practical jokes already!
It's the 16th of April (spring is supposed to be in full swing right now) and I had to wake up to this!!!! I'll spare you from the words I said as I woke up and saw this or the other ones I also said while driving to work!

Here are just a few snaps from this morning at dawn! They are straight out of the camera, no PP.

That white mound in the middle is supposed to be a bird house on top of my pergola.

Hi Frank, that does not look like fun. Here we are in the 70's and enjoying the good life. I feel sorry for the people running the Boston Marathon this morning as it is cold and wet.

I will side with Gale and say that your WB is way off as the snow should be somewhat white regardless of how dark it is. I suggest you go to levels and get the white eyedropper and click on the brightest patch of snow and it will come close to fixing the WB problem.

Here is an example:

I will be glad to take this down if it offends you.

Hello Gordon,

you and Gale are absolutely right pertaining to the WB issue with these shots. All I meant is when I looked outside this morning, everything had this weird bluish tint (sort of like these shots straight out the the camera)...but it could just be me...I had not had my first (or second or third) cup of coffee yet!!!:biggrin: Your fix does look better though! Thanks for the input.

lolol It works in cs3 as well....

Chip Springers Grey card action.

Now it may also need some tweeking as well.
It sets up layers that include, selective color, hue/daturation, color balance and levels.
I will look for Chips tutorial for you.

You can do it without the action. But having the layers set up for you sure helps.
I hate magenta and cyan color casts, so I have been a demon to attack them...lololol

Go through these links to get further help and how to.
