I'm pretty happy with how this one came out. I was walking through a newly-renovated/updated museum in Charlotte and was amused to see some of my favorite Detroit drinks (Faygo, Vernors) on display.

Edited in Elements 9, the main thing I did was use the Correct Camera Distortion filter to straighten things out. Then I fiddled with the Levels and sharpened a little and voila -- a picture I like better.

Rene, top right corner of the laptop is missing!

I noticed. Designer messed up and cropped the image too close...

Should put up a correct version on my website though ;)
Thanks.

I'm not seeing much of a difference in some of these posts. This is what I imagined this thread would look like. Or something similar.

This was taken with a piece of 4x5 welding glass (green in color obviously) with a 30 second exposure on a very bright morning. I must admit that I cheated here a bit. The first one was used to set the WB. I took another shot and edited that one and the second image you see here is the final result of that. But the fact that the second one was shot with a dark green piece of welding glass almost seems impossible that the second image could look as good as it does.

I dont quite get what you are saying? Did you take one with the welding glass and one with the just the plain lens and then merged them in photoshop? If you did, then how did you merge them?

I have. I guess I was just expecting something more drastic. Your edits are good but at the same time, with the proper software, they are are quick fixes.

Here's another one I did similar but without using WB method. This was all done in Photoshop. Pardon the screen grabs. There is another thread similar to this one that requires the screen grabs. :D

This was a 5 minute capture of a very busy highway.

Nope. Both shots are with the Welding Glass. The second shot had the White Balance adjusted to the first shot. It almost corrected all of the green. I had just a little tweaking to do on the second shot.

i really like this one! Great PP skills you have there.. is this all photoshop or did you use plugins and stuff like that to get the resulting image?

I don't know why, but when I reduced the size of the original for the post above, it looks much darker than it originally was...

Anyways, I did this edit about a year ago. All I had back then was DPP and GIMP. I remember having to bump up the shadows a bit, and then decided to desaturate them which made them look a bit cleaner and it also helped to make the sky stand out more as well. The sky and highlights just used different saturation and tone adjustments.
