Hi Lannie, this old mill looks good any which way you shoot it. Please take a look at my portfolio and tell me what you think of the photos I took of Yates Mill in Raleigh recently. Someone told me about it a couple of weeks ago, I have been there twice now.

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Jim. What happened here was that I went back to the originals and found this version. I didn't add the saturation, but it is definitely unnatural, and not at all what I saw that evening. I'm sure the two (or more) shots were made in sequence, and so I do not know how the camera can change the color balance so much. Maybe I was operating manually and over-exposed. I really do not remember. Thanks for all your comments. As I recall, you lived here once and thus know which colors are accurate. --Lannie

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Jim. Those are great shots. I left more on your pages. . . . As for this old mill, this is the best shot I have, in my opinion: I think I need a folder now for all these variations, including the ones further down in this folder. --Lannie

Jim Phelps
Lannie, The enhanced reds cause this to become somewhat unbalanced. In the original image the red was balanced by the blues in the sky and building. You might try increasing the saturation on the blues in addition to the reds, or try increasing the overall color saturation on the image Jim Phelps
