actually, it looks like a color management issue and beginning to me
first, the plain one looks like untagged Adobe RGB (desaturated in web browser)
if you want the true color in photoshop
edit> assign profile: adobe RGB
if you want to jack the saturation up closer to your goal (to begin)
photoshop> edit> assign profile: prophoto RGB
photoshop> edit Convert to sRGB
try photoshop's Selective Color (to go to work on the correcting the blues)...
the highlights look like some kind of
photoshop> filter> artistic: plastic wrap
may have been applied (and painted back in)
You are a genius!! Thank you for taking the time to answer......I tried your method and it comes very close to the effect I wanted. I would never have been able to figure out that the profile needed changing or to use selective colour.
Thanks once again,
This is all very helpful advice and a technique that I wouldnt have found out about by myself.
