I reworked the image from scratch again. I noticed my previous edit has some noise in the foreground that I fear will show up in print. I also set a custom white balance keyed off of another image of my wife who was wearing a gray jacket in the same set. This looks closer to what my minds eye remembers.
I may still knock down the shadows in the foreground just a tad. The shot looks great on my 27" calibrated iMac retina display but on my dell work displays, the foreground looks a bit too bright. The monitors are not calibrated so I can't really rely on them.
How does it look on your calibrated monitors?
So after stepping away from this shot for a bit, I came back to do my final cleanup before I send it to print. Thought I'd share with you guys because I was giving some good feedback which helped me make this photo better.
Here is what I did...
Leveled the horizon (you guys were right. LOL)
Brought up the shadows a bit. A bit too much contrast before.
I composited in some of the color in the sky on the right into the left. I felt the blue showing through did not harmonize well with the rest of the image.
Cropped a bit off the top.
Print BIG, that is going to look stunning on your wall.
Still looks off to me even though I know it's a trick of the horizon being blocked by the mountains.
Love what you've done with the colors. Look great on my calibrated monitor.
