Great DiaAzul 2004-08-05 4:50

I wish I had known that this festival was taking place, it seems a nice event to watch - perhaps next year.

Like most scanned pictures, the colour balance in your photograph has a magenta bias to it. In addition the whites and black have been blown-out a little on the hulls of the boat and the lighthouse. I did a workshop to adjust the colour balance, reduce contrast, increase saturation and then add a bit of local contrast enhancement (sharpening).

Default To DiaAzul: Douarnenez

The Douarnenez Maritime Festival occurs every two years in Brittany (next time is, hopefully, in 2006). Every four years, the festival in Douarnenez occurs just after an even bigger festival in Brest (it was this year, so next time should be now in 2008). There are hundreds of traditionnal boats (over 1500 this year I think) from all countries, of all sizes, and they all sail together everyday. It's quite incredible.
Thank you for the workshop and good job on the white parts. I will try to do something similar on the original file. I think the sharpening is a little too much on your work, but of course working on a small and already compressed file doesn't help.
