The photo has a bit of a reddish tint to it. Try adjusting the levels a bit and see what you can come up with.

Hi Alec,

Your photo has a slight color reddish color cast as ssw9662 states above. It's easily fixed in most editing packages. I used Photoshop for my example but you should be able to do the same with the package you are using.

To show you the difference I just corrected a small area in the photo. First tool I used was 'Auto Color' this got read of the reddish cast and then I used the 'Auto Levels' tool to adjust brightness and contrast levels. You can see the result where the sky is a much more pleasant color.

I hope this helps,

Cheers,

Christine.
