Thanks Vicki, What a problem this picture has been, until recently I could not get the colors correct, as with many of my photos. Then I read an article in a Outdoor Photographer were they taled about adjusting the white and black points to increase contrast and color. After trying it on several photos I got this one out and it came to life. I am glad it really was a relaxing place. #2254178

What a delightful image Emmett, there is so much to see in this photograph.
I find I can improve the end result of an image taken with a polarizing or a ND filter in photoshop contrast/brightness.
I did enjoy your gallery, my kind of images. #2361313

John you bring up a good point I use them often, but in the last week and a half I have discovered the BIG problem.I shot RAW and I have my color module on my camera set to Adobe RGB. the problem was the Picematic software I used to edit the raw format and convert it to jpeg did not see the Adobe RGB correctly. therefor my PSP softeware was also off. Once I figured that out things have been alot better. #2361510
