Well, I'm back from my Alaskan adventure. A huge thank-you to everyone who offered tips, hints, and suggestions on what to bring - it went great and I have a ton of photo's.
Which brings me to my current dilemma. As this is my first real photo-taking adventure, aside from taking the occasional round of photos with a disposable camera on family vacations in the past, I'm now sitting on a large number of photo's which require some sort of post processing. As I have no experience with this, I'm basically left with a lot of questions at this point! I should add that I do have Adobe CS5 and bridge, and I've started experimenting, but at the moment I think I'm causing more harm than good!
So a couple questions. I've read through the tutorials available on the site, as best I can, and I think I'm starting to understand what they represent. But I don't have a very good grasp on what's needed. Is there a collection of filters / changes that tend to be required on every photo, regardless of what it looks like, to make it suitable for printing?
Also, since it rained 8/10 days that we were on vacation, many of my photo's are rather cloudy / grey. This is especially a problem taking pictures out on the water, where the grey of the clouds tends to blend into the grey of the ocean. Is there anything that can be done to correct this now? Example:
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'll attach some examples of what I'm trying to do / fix shortly. Thanks very much!
