Default Which one

Because of something ELrascal said I had a go at this picture:

and transformed it to this using the channel mixer - in green to +80 and in blue to -20 and opacity to 65%, then added noise to give it that old look.

Which one do you think is best? and does it work?

The first. There is something odd about the picture, almost as if there is a night and day shot combined since the shade seems so dull and the sunny area is much more vibrant. There is some very weird contrast IMO but I do like it much better than the second as I'm not sure that I like the orange hue. What was it that was said so that I don't have to go searching everywhere?

sandstone 5 is my kind of picture ( may I suggest some rework on the red reflection)
It's nothing really, just made me think of a technique I read about in a magazine to warm-up photos in PSP7, so thought I'd have a go. I think it's best for those really low and red sunsets to warm them up even more.

Hi Steve6,

I would vote with #1 also with an added suggestion:

Consider doing it in greyscale...this might lend something
to the "muted colors of winter".

Well, I guess it's the first then :lol:

Now to B+W, never considered that.
