Hey Folks,

I have an image that I really like, but I over-polarized it. Any tips on how to take out blue-jean blue?

Select the blues and desaturate?

Hey Jim,

Thanks. That seems to be helping a bit. I still cannot get the sky looking perfectly natural.

Check the top center of the pano - that is the area I am having difficulty with.

James,

Not sure if this is helpful, but below is what I got when I set the grey point on some of the snow in the background using the eyedropper on a curves adjustment layer.

Hey Dave,

Thanks. That looks a bit better. The trick though is now I am seeing 'pink' streaks in your sky. I would not mind this if it were a sunrise shot, but as you can see, it was obviously later in the AM.

James,

I wonder if that is banding because I was working off a low res image? I did not introduce any colors - I just used curves to neutralize the image by setting a gray point. I wonder if you would get the banding if you tried the same thing from the high res image?

Otherwise I do not have any other suggestions.

I'm not much help either, 'cept to say, I have gotten away
from polarizing wide angle landscapes, for this reason....

Nice otherwise though...

I looked close at your original photo that you posted James. There is banding in the dark area already. I played with the photo also, but my results did not come out much different than Dave's did. The banding jumps out.

James:

I'm guessing you gave your stitching program fits by forgetting to AEL on the appropriate location? I see the banding in your original too. Thought it might have been whisps of wannabe clouds forming since you weren't using a particular model of the same camera brand I shoot with (says Jim taking a good natured poke at his own brand <G>. blush

Anyway, I'm a neophyte when it comes to post processing, but here's what I came up with in PSE8 using a combination of the large and small flaw SPOT Healing Brush.
