Well, as best I can remember.
Step one;

1. Opened the image in photoshop
2. view/show/guides and pulled horizontal guides to mark roof/window lines
3. edit/free transform rotated image to get building straight
4. edit/free transform/distort pulled upper right corner out to right to straighten the side of the building a bit.
Once satisfied with lines of the building, saved

Step two;

5. copied the copyright/logo
6. cropped image
7. pasted logo
8. created layer mask for logo and brushed out sky to blend in.
9. merged logo with image and saved

Step three

10. Filter/NIK Silver Efex
11. increased structure (detail)
12. merged Efex layer with image and changed mode to luminosity
saved

Step 4
13. Created new blank layer on top
13. change foreground color to green (chose one that looked most like grass)
14. with blank layer active, paint the grass areas green
15. add hue/saturation layer and linked with the layer I just painted green.
16. changed the hue to something more resembling winter grass.
17. dropped the opacity of the grass so that it looked more natural
18. merged all layers

saved and uploaded.

Now that's from memory and at my age, I don't place any bets on my memory :)
Also note that 13, 16, and 17 are very subjective. You need to just play with those till your image looks right.

Hope this helps

Hinson



Huge help. Thanks very much!

Here's what I came up with. Looking at it now, I could have done a wee bit of desaturation also.

May be just me, but the bottom shot looks uneven....may just be optical illusion due to the curving yard. Top shot looks more level.

Impromptu interior shots of newly renovated classroom prior to opening reception. Taken with 24-105L handheld @ 24mm. Hoping to do a proper shoot with TS-E 17 and 24 during the day.

If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

I need help, please! I am wondering what wide angle lens everyone uses for real estate photography? I have been advertising that I will photograph real estate and I recently did and the realtor said she didn't like the photos. Personally, I think mine are better than hers, as hers are dark and not as crisp. I am just wondering what I might do differently as she thinks they are distorted and out of focus. Could this be an editing issue? Possibly unsharpening them too much? Thank you all!!!!

With your body you should look at the Canon 10-22.

What lens are you currently using? Remember, you dont need to go UWA on most interior shots.

I'm just a keen amateur and wouldn't dare charge a cent for my photography yet, all feedback and guidance is appreciated. This is a new medical research facility in the city of Adelaide, South Australia. Some were taken handheld because my three-way head doesn't angle far enough back to get this sort of POV for me. All of these are taken with the Samyang 24mm tilt-shift lens.
