Are we allowed to play with white balance? Or should the picture be taken 0,0?

If i was to be completely honest anything to do with the shades, tones etc etc can be adjusted. But when it comes to the Hue i tend to think that you should steer away from that.

Sorry George, but yours is a fine example of why i think the Hue shouldn't be touched, you can clearly see that is not natural colours when you look at the vehicles in the background, i actually refuse to believe they are actually that colour.

I don't have Photoshop on my PC so i can't reverse what you did, but i am finding it hard to believe there was anything in that photograph purple from the beginning. The Hue can do alot, so i don't think people should be playing about with that. If you are not satisfied with the purple in your photograph after tone /curve adjusting then don't submit it.

OK devilwood, I gotta ask. Is that an untouched photo from the store, or did you "doctor" it? Looks to me like more of a digital art entry than a photo entry. Be honest. It's cool as all getout regardless.

What's up ATNO? First off, nice pic yourself. I like the playing card glass. Did you finish drinking the drink when you were done taking the pic?

My image is straight from the camera, only sized for requirements. Purple was kinda of a hard topic. I've gone everywhere with my camera the past couple of weeks and I knew I could find a skyline that was purplish or even some flowers somewhere. I was chillin' at the pool and this hot chick (real person) with a nice purple bikini and matching towel walked by but the girls I was with told me that just walking up and asking for a pic was creepy. I agreed a little. I'm a programmer so I'm always a little creepy anyway. I hope I didn't disappoint any other guys viewing the post cause that one would have been really enjoyable. I know it was for me at the pool. I was actually on a lunch date saturday with a girl I met when I took this pic and even though it was very weird I had to stop and take this pic. We're going out again in a couple of weeks so I think she looked apast my abruptly stopping and taking a few pics of a manequin. Maybe a sign of true love?

So, I got you a zip folder with some originals of the manequin if you want them. I took a few shots.... with my camera not Crown.

I'm a Tennessee Sour Mash man, myself. But, I sure wouldn't turn my nose up at Crown. :)

Ever had a chance to visit the JD distillery here south of Nashville in Lynchburg?

No, I try not to visit dry counties, as a rule. I mean, what if I got stuck there for some reason. :lol:

J/K!

I would like to go and see the still, one day. We've gone to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge a couple times, but never made it as far over as Lynchburg.

If you ever wanted to, I'd be glad to ride my bike down and visit with you. Lynchburg's a nice ride from here, and the distillery's always a nice visit. Just be sure not to drink a few days before you go. Ugh, the strength of the smell in the barrel warehouse are unbelievable.

That sounds like my sister in-law's breath, you could almost get drunk just getting a whiff of the booze on her some times.
