Last time I was in Vancouver, I took some overview shots of the Airport, but the came out with an annoying green hue. I have tried everything I can think about to get them right, but I just can't.

Is there anyone here that would want to ether show me what steps to do to make it look good, or I can also email the original and someone can try and edit it.

Thanks,
Douglas

In CS2 I used auto color which helped a lot then I went into Image>Adjustment>Channel Mixer.

Once there I selected the Output Channel to green and then slid the the green color slider from 100 down to say 96.

Play with it and see what you like...

I think I got the second one right, but I still can't get the first one. Anyone?

Thanks

Anyone know the secret to edit the first one? If anyone knows it, I'd be very happy to email the original and get help.

Thanks

Never use the auto-color function. Try the following: In Photoshop, CTRL+B will open the 'Colour balance' window. There you can play with the channels until you get a decent result. Try working on one or two of the three channels, not changing all of them at the same time.
A couple of comments: the first shot will probably get a motive rejection, because there´s not that much aircraft material in the pic to make such a close-up, and the airport grounds that can be seen are only the tarmac, the grass and a bit of the parking lot. There´s not enough airport action to support a close-up like this and name it under 'Airport overview'.
For the second shot I think you need to apply a bit CW rotation.

Hope it helps.  thumbsup
