The Boat

Attempt 1, which probably shows that I don't know what I'm doing. I do, however, know what colour the sky at Point Reyes is :D

The other 'extra' pic:

Still a bit dark?

Also, I tried setting a skin tone on the little girl's face, and it did undesirable things to the image as a whole...

re: The Boat...

Overall it is still too blue. See screen shot attached. For your first swing at this you have come a long ways. poke it a bit more and see if you can get it.

Some things to note about this image: There is more shadow detail in the wheel house you can find. There is highlight detail in the white side of the boat. Remember you can use multiple passes through CM and multiple color spaces to make the corrections. You can attack the color in RGB and the tonality and saturation in LAB if you need to.

RE: Merry Go Round image:

Yes...It is still a bit too dark. Again, in this image if you work out the color in RGB and the tonal range in LAB with a saturation boost you will find better results. I would call you current version flat. It needs better highlights and snappier colors.

Slightly less overly blue, and with more detail -- maybe?

Since I've now worked on all the examples (although I'm still kind of working on this one), I clicked 'complete the lesson' -- but the website now tells me I've completed the course. I'm pretty sure there's more...?

Overall color is quite good. On my monitor it looks a bit heavy but if it looks right on you monitor leave it be.
Heavy being too dark.
