    Been playing around with PS again.
    This time on a night shot that I got the exposure somewhat wrong.

    Original photo

    but in reality it was about this dark when I took the shot

    Either way I wasn't happy with it, but as I rarely delete RAW files I thought I'd see what I could do

    I think I like it

    The house, or whatever type of building this is, is a little too bright for me.
    Other then that I love the tone and composition?
    Is this just a layer filter with some minor adjustments or is it more complicated than that.

    And see.. no picture is ever garbage. Thanx to the world of PS nearly everything is salvageable.

    Nice job!!

    The brightness of the boat house is the one part of the shot I'm happy with :lol:
    its basically two different colour versions layered on top of each other, one sepia and one blue tone, none looked right to me so I just started playing with them together. Then a bit of dodge and burning, bit of curves and levels

    I like the effect but not too sure about the green tho', but can't think what colour would do better, maybe a shade of brown?

    i do agree with neea i love the pic but i think the house is a tad bright, bring that down and it would be perfect for me!

    Very stark and a bit surreal. I like the dark foreground adds a creepy feel to it but maybe the brightness of the house needs to be toned down just a bit?
