Here's two photos, one original and the other fixed. I'm putting together a new slide show of Utah and this is one of the photos I wasn't considering because it was to washed out, or faded. There's a technique using luma masks that brings out details and I've been learning how to use it. Here's an example.

Here's the fixed version. I have a lot of photos that came out real nice using this method. The actucal size looks much better than these resized versions. I should have cut and pasted the original sky in this version.

If you think I have nerve for driving in the middle nowhere in my car, consider this fellow. I had the camera sitting next to me in the front seat and I was traveling 65 mph when I saw this guy approaching. I just had time to grab the camera and snap this shot. I wasn't even sure I got him in the frame till I checked it.

Here's another one I used the LAB overlay mask on.

This was taken a different year. The number count on the previous one is in the seven hundreds. This one is in the five thousands. Not much changes out there from year to year.

I was complaining about the lack of sunshine here until I realized what an awesome photo this is.

Wow, great pictures.
They really cleaned up nicely. I have too many photographs that are sort of washed out and faded looking.
You're work shows me what is possible.

I really enjoyed the scenery too. I love going on road trips and watching the scenery change. This sure reminds be of driving between Denver and Las Vegas.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Almost all of my photos are shot through the windshield with a greenish circular polorizar filter. It takes the glare out of the photos but leaves them with a washed out green hue. I didn't have much hope for them till I tried Photoshop elements and I started learning how to fix them. Then I moved to GIMP and Photoshop CS and I kind of leaned towards GIMP since it was eaiser to use. I still like it and version 2.8 is out which can be configured to a single window interface. If you can't afford Photoshop then GIMP is the way to go. I think any washed out photo can be fixed to some extent, especially using an inverted LAB overlay. It works wonders. And all of these photos are from an inexpensive 5.1 megapixel Fujifilm Finepix S5200 camera.

Know the feeling.

Thanks for the road trip & views

It's a pity these aren't available for Public viewing.

What wonderful views of an amazing place, Ron.
What is this magical LAB overlay you are using? I can't find any reference to it in PSE. Is it available in Gimp?

It's not an option in PSE, only in Photoshop CS or GIMP. It decomposes the photo based on a different color space than RGB. The "L" in LAB is for the luminous channel and it supposedly has more infomation than just gray scale or converting to black and white. If you go to youtube and search luma masks you'll find some good tutorials on both PS and GIMP.
