I took a swipe at this one. Inverted a K mask then desat in LAB to remove the cast in the shadows. Duplicate layer; denoise in Topaz then add a multiply blend mode (cheat, cheat) in PSE7. Duplicate layer and adjust contrast and saturation in LAB. Regards, Niels Rasmussen

That's a genius idea! I've never thought to try that before - that's great!

It's a nice correction Niels ;) and we don't insist that everything gets done in CurveMeister, so no such thing as cheating ;D

I think that it's a little too dark (on my screen), given how saturated the sky is (although the image can probably stand a bit more saturation overall); maybe you need to reduce the opacity of the multiply move (or try multiplying through a mask?)

Thanks for having a crack at this one - and that K mask desat; brilliant!

Lee.

Hi Lee,
          Yes, you are right; it is a little on the dark side. I've lightened it a tad (a metric tad, that is!) and upped  the saturation a little. Regards, Niels.
