Thanks for the plug in. I have not given dehaze a full workout. It seems to solve issues in a different way than others. Perhaps a useful tool in the tool box. It is in ACR 2015 also I think. I am not excited about this continual update of Photoshop. That is a big understatement. One rule of life: w...

Photoshop is a strange beast. I find Lightroom to be intuitive. I find photoshop to be dense. Be sure to check for selection, layer selected, where is the focus, what is the function, and what are the parameters of the function. Sometimes I try to do something like brush and "Photoshop is broken." T...

Well, I went to the ranch and developed ping for the various crops, dirt roads, and hillsides (and blue jeans). I went back to other photos and pinned them. Did the move around the pin in different color spaces. The colors are not absolute like a car, but a better start. I think I am starting to lik...

You are right. I think I need to run several curves on it. The simple Lab or RGB make the road yellow. The hills are naturally blue with the haze, but I would like to cut that. This is not a Margulis 90 sec fix.  Most of the time with a big complex issue I have to hand paint masks and the correct ea...

Thank you for the input. The Quito photo had detail and some noise. Pushing and pulling colors and lens correction made a mess out of both. You cannot see all of it at web resolution. I can see at web posting a graininess which does not work. I went back to the original raw files and did a better co...

Version is post stich, no crop, some color correction, no boost.

Version 2 cropped, etc.

There was some funkiness on the left and it was too "white" anyway. The lens correction leveling was close, but one of the buildings is still (or back) off a little.

Ganna- you are probably right. The best is to start over and use adaptive wide angle.<br /><br />Julie- interesting take.  I brighten up the square, and especially the church. Artistically you are right. The big white church is the national church with much gold inside. i was hoping that the sun wou...
