I'd appreciate some help. I've tried multiple adjustment layers, level adjustments, channel mixes, three or four different plugins from Fred Miranda, exposure, brightness and contrast....curve adjustments in all three channels.... the kitchen sink. I even put them in Aperture to see if that would help. I'm stuck. I had my head in a book all night last night trying to figure out how to make this crap I am getting lately look better (not pastel and fake looking). #1: #2: Any help appreciated.
