Sunset – Assignment 101

I improved the overall "pop" of colors by 1) using channel mixer and adjusting  "blues", "red"s and "greens",  2) adjusting my whites and blacks via levels 3) added luminosity blending mode. To bring out the details on the water, I lightened the water by adjusting my whites via levels. I also emphasized the orange glow in the water by adjusting "reds" in the channel mixer. I then brightened the whites of the clouds by using levels. I masked at different opacities ( 100% at the blue sky, 50% at the orange sky, 0% at water ) so that I mostly affect only the white clouds and blending that change down into the rest of the photo. Lastly, I rotated and cropped my photo so that the horizon line is straight.
