View from Kollhoff Tower

This one is a view from the ‘Kollhoff Tower’ in Berlin.

Got a nice view around the city, but a hard time finding the right white balance. When I take a sample from the lower areas I get a blue cast over the trees on the right corner below the horizon. Maybe it’s the air pollution…

@pphoto what about color balancing the green trees and grass separately? Applied a duplicate of color balance with a parametric mask. Used haze removal in this one.

the city view might benefit from this crop.

I’ve only been to Berlin once sadly, lovely city, and certainly a nice view. I opted for a tighter crop.

Thanks for posting this shot, my work with DT 3.2.1
