    I went to Yosemite with my dad in October. I bought a nice frame with inserts for two 4x6 photos that I am going to give him for xmas. I'm going to get these printed, if anyone see something that could be done to touch them up in photoshop, that would be awesome.

    Autolevels, upped blue and yellow saturation, increased contrast, light USM, and high-radius USM to remove haze, Neat Image.

    Damn Tomash, did your trees get burned in a forest fire?

    Damn, ( * )( * ), did your trees get waterbombed with spraypaint? :fawk:

    The bright green ones in the foreground look wrong compared to the rest of the forest in the background, it's distracting. The colour balance is better than my pic but the vignetting in the sky + added noise is worse :p The first pic is pretty good though :)

    Tomash, that pic does look like it was taken in the 60's too.. but mine's not much different so i probably can't criticise :rofl:

    Feel free to hurl abuse at my attempt :big grin:
