    This was up at by our mountain house. I was trying to capture the feel of the lake.

    It feels awfully magenta at the moment. ;) I think you went overboard with the hue button, your clouds aren't even white anymore. I'd tone it down a bit and see how it looks, for starters. :)

    What equipment did you use?

    Only today I got a couple of prints back from the lab. The clouds in all those that I took with the polarizer have come out this pink. It get worse after scanning! And it all looked so promising through the viewfinder...

    So maybe this is a scanned print and the photo was taken with a polariser?
    On Fujicolor C200?
    And the awful magenta hue is the effect?

    That's why I asked about equipment. ;) We prefer to see technical info accompany images that are submitted to the critique forum, and this is a classic example as to why. There could be a variety of reasons for the magenta cast here.

    LaFoto, if I got prints back like you described, I'd be camping out on the doorstep till they re-printed. :shock: That would be unacceptable!

    The thing is: I only pay 1 ct. for a print and that is why I feel I have no right to complain. If I should re-order and pay the higher price for the manufacturing of a second print, I'd insist on better quality, though.

    For editing all I did was multiply it

    I didn't using anything special for it. My Canon Elan 7ne with Kodak 400 film.

    Multiply means what?

    (I prefer the original - I might have lowered luminosity just a tad and increased contrast an equal tad).

    Multipy is a photoshop blending mode. I'll post a larger version, didn't realize that one got shrunk down so much.

    Ah, thanks.
    (I am the one here who understands next to nothing about photoshop, I'm afraid).

    That is a marked improvement over the original post! The reflected water in the distance is now blue, and I can also see the detail of the trees on the hillside to the center left. You really opened it up. :thumbup:

    Looks like a beautiful place! :D

    LaFoto, you say you don't understand much about PS, but your suggestions here were spot-on. :)
