Hey all,

I've been playing around with some old (from last year) photos from my trip to Hawai'i. I'd love some feedback on whether this style of processing is working or not. What's your opinion? Too yellow? Thanks in advance.

Cheers.

Somehow you already knew, but that's my opinion only. You may have a reason for that :)

It's different, and I like different. However, it is unnatural looking so if that's what you were aiming for...

I think No 1 looks good, maybe a little too yellow, but you can get away with it.

No 2 is too much

You could create an HSB adjustment layer and try shifting the yellow hues towards green a bit. That might work better than curves in this case.

I prefer the edit of this image. The other image is over the top IMO.

In my screen the clouds look funny like photomatix does some times.. the yellow or blue or whatever is in your personall choice.. we have to respect that. is it lightroom what you used?? I tryed to fix the lighting with a photo and I got the same yellow effect.. Anyway It looks better than the original.

Thanks to all for the feedback. Atlandis, yeah, it's in LR. These two are attempts to rescue otherwise ruined photos, and do it in a semi-artsy way, hence the yellow tone. It felt warm and inviting, kinda like Hawai'i ya know. ;)
