    Hi,

    which one looks better to you ? It is exactly the same picture with identical post processing parameters except saturation in blue channel.

    #2 for me too, might not be accurate, but it looks nicer

    Hi Robert, I also like # 2 even thought it look over the top to me. What if you were to go about 30% closer to #1?

    Re: Swan

    Robert I'm with Frank on this one. I'd look at something between the two extremes. The blueness certainly improves the shot but I think you've gone a bit far.

    Hi,

    thanks for your suggestions. What about this version? I croped in a little bit and reduced saturation in the blue channel compared to version 2.

    Re: Swan

    Robert the colour looks more natural in this however I'd like to rescind my sugggestion as I think #2 is a more pleasing image. Also I think the original crop was better because with it the branches in the foreground form a sort of frame that you look through whereas with the new crop they just look like a distraction because there's not enough of them. Just my opinion of course.

    Cheers Dave
