Dwayne!

Just out of couriosity. Would you be prepared to let me have the RGB-values of this very nice grey-blue tone you use in your monotone pictures above? It's so lovely and matches the motives perfectly!


I myselv have some ice-monuments with a mono-treatment, http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ot...plain-ice.html but cannot get the right tone to fit it. It's juat a tad too blue, IMO.
My RGB's (so far...) are:
R = 92
G = 111
B = 151

Best regards,
Walter

If you would disclose the values directly to me, my e-mail is >[email protected]<

Thanks!

Hi Walter,

So you want the secret sauce hey ? lol I can tell you what I can do, you
are very close to the silver/blue Duotone. Use your color balance tool
and add some cyan from what you have added so far, then just
desaturate the colors and you there. Hope this helps, let me know how
you make out.

Take care,
Dwayne Oakes

your photo


some cyan added then global color desaturation
