Weird Sunrise

Me and the geese. The colors were gaudy and odd. I don't see purple sunrises here. Would you alter the colors? How?

looks like the geese were willing to let you join if you wanted - This might be a case of "it is what it is". You could alter it, but it is strange and special and worth keeping for those very reasons. Perhaps keep the colors and the mood and go for Japanese Iconic painting and get rid of a lot of detail, but save the colors and mood.

Nice adjustment. What did you do? You tamed the colors in the sky without losing any light on the geese.

LOL - "how Frank, how did you do it?", Frank says, "just a flick of the wrist dear".

ooops.....Now y'all have me feeling bad....I already deleted the original and really can't remember what I did, which is how most of my stuff goes. I just start playing and go from one thing to another. As best I remember it really was a couple of curves layers masked and a texture layer. I brighten and darken and mask where I want which ever look......Ha...what a liar I am. Luckily the file was in the trash and I had not emptied the trash..looks like I used Hue/Saturation layers more than curves. So her's the psd.
