    I know these aren't the exact same photo, but they look identicle color wise in the originals.

    Now #1 I have posted in the past, but I went through and used some PS, trying to learn how to get better color and crisper pics.. and I really like how it turned out in #2.

    What do you think?

    not bad, how did you do it? Did you saturate it or edit the curves?

    Ok this is a normal sunset I took a few weeks ago.

    This is one that I adjusted the saturation up +30%

    And this one I selectively adjusted the color saturation through the curves menu.

    If anyone has any questions about this you can ask me in the Examples, How-To's and Graphics Program Tutorials

    /PS: if you knew this already Nytmair think of it as a helper for other people :)

    thanks! i'm just starting to learn about curves and that stuff... but I did minor curves, and i made a second layer copied from the background then I think it was Burn (i'm at school now so I can't double check, but i'll look when i get home) and brought the transperacy on the burned layer down to around 50%. it darked and encriched the colors a lot IMO.

    wow, i honestly didn't even know we had a graphics tutorial forum :oops:

    I like the smoke better in the first, one, but I like the rest of #2 more. Here's an interesting sunset pic:
