    I sat on this image for a year before processing it and after processing it I still felt it was missing something so it sat in PS for two weeks. What I didn't like was the color cast it was to cool for my liking and nothing I did to warm it up improved it. I really liked the comp and the sunlight on the water so I did not want to give up on it and I could have left it as it was since it was still a good image, then I watched a Ted Gore video on processing one of his images and he should how he warmed it up using a curve adjustment on individual color channels by decreasing the blue and boosting the red channels it added just a touch of warmth to the image that I was looking for. Anyway would interested in your thought as I will post the two versions so you can compare them.

    The warmer version is a massive improvement even though when I look at specific areas the tweaks don't seem to be that great.

    Hi Don,

    I too prefer the warmer image, although both are quite wonderful. The patternation in the FG water provide a great draw into the image and onto the water and sky..

    Hi Don, I prefer the warmer version. Love the flow of the water going back to the sea...it really adds a nice leading lines to draw us into the scene. I am looking forward to the next two weeks whereby I will be on Cayman Brac enjoying sunrises / sunsets over the Caribbean Sea

    Hi Don - Count me in as another preferring the warmer version. Really beautiful scene and the slow ss worked well here to blur the surf.

    TFS,
    Rachel
