Default Resting From Skiing In The Sunset

It was a very dark yellowish shot in origin, taken behind my yellow anti-fog ski glasses to enhance snow in the backlight.

This is how it turned out after "some" elaboration.

What's your opinion ? ( Maybe too bright now ?).



P.S. :
Layer 0
- rotation, crop
- curve adjustment on selected areas
- manual levels adjustments
- manual brightness-contrast adjustment
- saturation adjustment
- skier replacement on the left
- some dogde-sharp tool brushstrokes on skii

Layer 1
- Orange gradient on the upper part, colorize blend mode.
- played with several parameters.

Layer 2
- Blue-Cyan gradient on the lowest part, colorize blend mode
- played with several parameters

All levels have then been collapsed and :
- ski selection
- inverse selection
- manual levels adjustment
- inverse selection , back to skii
- a little bit desaturation to avoid the strong orange-cyan cast on the ski

Great job IMO!

It's too bright at first, but as soon as the eyes adjust--which is quickly--it looks as if that's just the way the colors ought to be. Not only a good job, but also an inventive one.

What if you simply enhanced rather than altered the colors? I really like that yellow sky.
