I took the photos below about 1 year ago and I just love them because of the unique (and rare!) combination of dark storm clouds, golden evening lighting, and fall colours on the trees. At the time I tried 2-3 separate times to upload without success, so I decided to leaved them for the old personal collection. The reason for rejection was always because of bad colours. There was also some debate about the fluorescent strips around the winglet and underneath the door, but that was put to rest because this phenomenon is common with Air Canada's scheme under certain lighting conditions.
Well it's fall again and with the trees changing colours I remembered these images so I've decided to have another go. Would anyone be so kind as to offer some suggestions as to how to properly correct the colours/white balance of these images? Feel free to post examples that you've edited. Also, let me know which of the two you prefer for an upload (at the time I worked on the frontal shot).
All suggestions/opinions are welcomed, especially those of the screeners. Thanks in advance for any help!
