Hi Rhys, this is a great shot, It's very well composed and interesting, technically correct... but for some reason I am not exactly sure what, I cannot put my finger on it, but I am not intrigued with the color here. It works, but........ It's not dramatic maybe? Like I said I cannot put my finger on it, I would personally like to see a bit more post processing I guess, darker, burn in some detail on the boat and in the background water and bump up the contrast maybe?

Hi Cyndie, thanks again for your comments. I have not yet learned how to use the burn in tool in Photoshop. I will have to work out how to use it and see what I can do. Do you know where I can find a good tutorial for it online?

By the way , this photo is the second of a series of selective colourings from Viet Nam that I am posting. I have got about another five or so yet to come, but I am drip feeding them onto the site at a rate of one a day ;)

I will look up some links and post in a few days if I find them. The best resource I have is a book by Scott Kelby, "The photoshop CS2 book for digital photographers" (there are previous versions also) even doing photoshop for a living, it gives me valuable info.... also photoshop podcasts through itunes! TONS of great stuff from there.

I like the selection of the pink tunic, but what strikes me is the sharpness of its edges (more obvious in the darker version). If you ever revisit it ... maybe a slight slight blur on the pink tunic alone would lessen the sharpness and subtly complement the haunting effect.
