|1. Original colour image|
|2. Default grayscale image|
I found a landscape image I'd taken (Image 1) that mostly consisted of two strongly contrasting colours: blue and orange. I would say the difference between the two resultant images after I had adjusted (extremely and oppositely) the blue and orange sliders on the two images were massive. I thought they could be mistaken for two different photographs, although I only felt one of the two was effective by itself.
That image was Image 4, where I had increased the orange slider greatly and decreased the blue slider greatly (actually to the maximum for both). This created a stark, striking image in my opinion that showed off both the sky and the foreground details (which were opened up) well.
Image 3 (where I had increased the blue slider greatly and decreased the orange slider to the maximum) suffered a lot in the sky for me, even though I hadn't increased the blue slider all the way. The sky was somewhat offset by the dark, contrasty foreground where anything orange was converted to dark grey but nevertheless the sky looked washed-out and less-contrasty.
Image 2 (the default grayscale image with no hue adjustments) looked most similar to Image 2 but was pretty unremarkable in comparison to Image 3; where everything in Image 3 seemed much more dynamic so it was good to see that altering these sliders could make such a dramatic and in this case, positive change.
