Here is a photo I took of Downtown KC. I wanted to catch the train yards, but man the overcast is just killer. Is there anything that can be done with this? I am just learning PS, but could really use some advise as I deal with overcast and or pollution often. Thanks in advance.

photo shop, curves until the trains became more visible, played around with contrast and brightness, unsharp mask quite heavily. For the seapia, that was done in actions and the frame put on at the same time. The B/W was desaturated from the seapia and cropped as well.

I then put all through neat image to remove the noise

Here is my attempt. Used some pretty heavy unsharp mask, a touch of noise reduction, and saturation adjust.

PS: also added grain to give a bit of texture to the buildings in b/g

Hi, here is my attempt, done in PaintShopPro.

I'm Dutch, so I don't know all the English words for the tools I used.

But I used a lot :-)

By the way, how can I place a picture IN this mail, and not as an attachment?

Wow, I am impressed. All of these look really good for what you had to work with.

vogel13, that is amazing, please, if you can, try to tell me how you did it. You did all that with photoshop?

Also, thanks aladyforty. What is this neat image?, I'll have to look that up, probably need that.

I did use PaintShopPro7

. rotate a bit to the right side

. cut the picture

. changed the size and after that: ALWAYS sharpen

. histogram

. lightness and contrast

. deepened the colours, removed some blue

. jpeg compression

In my simple words is this what I did.....

If you want the original adapted picture, ask me: vogel@swnet.nl
