    Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to make the blue on the van bluer? As always, C&C is welcome as well.

    Thanks

    I imagine you could use the magic wand tool to select the blue areas, and then either raise the saturation or shift the color balance or hue towards the blue and cyan side.

    I like the original better. but you should post them both together in the original post so it's easier to tell the difference instead of scrolling up and down. But the original pic is better to me idk why but it is.. lol..

    awesome shot either way:thumbup:

    I like the second...the color seems to pop more but it still has that old abandoned feeling to it
