Default Re: Little friendly tweaking

I went a different route with it.
Here's what I did without doing anything to your turck.

The original


Remove the blue cast. Look at the snow and windmill areas which has a blue cast. Your truck was looking pink due to the blue mixing with the red. Go into levels and select the blue channel. Adjust the sliders to reduce the blue.

Reduce some of the haze.
To reduce the haze, reduce brightness by a factor of 10, Increase contrast by a factor of 10 and finally increase warmth by a factor of 10.

Sharpen the image. Due to the small size of the file it is a little over sharpened. Sharpening on the original would produce better results. I hope it's closer to it's true colors now.

Dave,
The 1st has a little haze to my eye. Unless my glasses need cleaning!

The 2nd one still has the haze. I wonder if you feathered the edge would soften the line a little?

The 3rd is much better! Better contrast and the haze is gone. The text color is too light for me as it's white text on a light background. I would use either the orange sky or border color so it would stand out better.

It's a little blue / yellow. Disreguard if this was the effect you were going for.
