I used the Measure tool in CS2 and used the very centre of the photo to check the horizon Goldy.

I couldn't recreate your frame or your signature, so I did the best I could with a border.

I live by the sea and I always have to straighten up my horizons!!

Best regards

Hi Goldy

As I mentioned I tried to address the contrast by removing the overall smokiness and reducing the rich saturation.

1. Adjusted the "Levels" on the RGB channel with the "White slider" input at 189, the "Black slider" input at 125, and the "Midtones slider" input at 0.96.
2. Adjusted the "Shadow/Highlight" settings at the following values:-
-- Shadows:
-- Amount = 30%
-- Tonal width = 30%
-- Radius = 30px
-- Highlights:
-- Amount = 50%
-- Tonal width = 50%
-- Radius = 30px
-- Adjustments:
-- Colour correction = +20
-- Midtone contrast = 0
4. Adjusted "Contrast" to +7 and "Brightness" to -4.
5. Decreased "Saturation" -32.
6. Adjusted "Gamma" settings in "Exposure" to 1.03.
7. Changed "Colour Balance" with "Cyan" at +3, "Magenta" at -2, and "Yellow" at +2.
8. Chose "Save for Web".
9. Adjusted the "Quality" upwards from the original downloaded size of 178kB to 295kB.

Just remember I had to work with a photo that was already 'modified' so the result is probably not as good as what it could have been if I worked with the original photo. Even after the decrease in saturation I feel it is still too much as the grass in the foreground is still way too green.

I see you work with PhotoShop CS3 so you should be able to follow all the steps without any problem. I sincerely hope you accept this gesture in the supporting spirit it is intended and that you approve the optimisation that I've done.

Best regards
Loot

I used paintshop to reduce selective noise and sharpened bird...about it, but I suspect you like it with the noise...it is part of your overall technique which works so well....so this isn't "better", a word in which I do not believe in photos..but different..and gives me practice:-)

Hello Goldy,
When it comes to abstract at Dhikala chaur, I felt like making your clicked landscape to antique oil on canvas by increasing sharpness through Hp software program. Hope you like it.
