Upped the contrast as recommended, and used a couple different sharpening techniques for these. The first was a straight <acronym title="Surat Thani - Samui (USM / VTSM), Thailand">USM</acronym> at 110/0.3/0, and the second had the Sharpen Edges filter applied followed by a <acronym title="Surat Tha...

RE: Open Discussion On Colour Correction

I'm fairly new to this, but I just mess with the temperature and tint sliders in Adobe Lightroom, and check the results against the histogram to see if one color is too bright or too dark. I haven't tried doing anything more complex in Photoshop CS4 yet.
