I dont want anything artificial or fake added like a sun or clouds as I want to be able to say I photographed this, I just want to change the color to make it more relaxing instead of the purple, pink and strong orange color.. sorry I did not give exact details but thats because im not sure how exactly I want it to be and wanted to see if anyone had good ideas. Thank youThe image you posted looks like it's just a gradient added to the background, can you be a bit specific as to what you're looking, do you want a sun in the background or something like that
TYes thank you this is exactly what im looking for its really good! also, the mosque dome in the lower corner in the right has noise. When I post the image here it does not give it to you in its original size.. how can I send it to you in its original size and you can edit it for me?
Thank you for all that information, I have the tools and the best camera but not the experience with photography so all this is new to me.. I will check the links and learn about raw files. I also do not have photoshop propgram or ever used one.. I need the picture edited because a company asked for the link of my flickr account and I need to add this photo without the noise in it. I honestly wouldnt mind paying as I really need this and asked many people but did not get any help.With respect to you sending me the files and me doing work for you for free, I'm sorry, but I made a mistake when I first saw your post -- I thought that you wanted to learn how to do such work yourself in Photoshop because that is the main mission of PhotoshopGurus.com. I did not notice that you placed it in the "Free Photoshop Requests" forum. We have some members that will do free work, but unless it is an emergency, I rarely do such requests, but I am happy to spend as much time as needed to teach Photoshop techniques.
For anyone who may want to work on this image in the way that I did, all I did was to ingest it into PS through ACR with the following settings:
contrast increased slightly
black level decreased
white level increased
slight sharpening applied
slight luminosity NR applied
lots of chroma NR applied (settings: low detail, very smooth)
There might be some other ACR settings that I applied, but I think these are the major ones.
Hope that helped,
