    i want this to be perfect so my aunt and uncle (they live in that house) can get it printed and hung on their wall. they wanted a good pic of their house and i thing this is a good candidate.

    I like what you did to it. I'm not that great at photo editing, my thing is Ai. I would like to see the sky above the rainbow be the same as the sky below it in your picture.

    First of all, that pic is way to small for a decent dpi for a picture to hang on a wall. Also try using a layer mask to kind of erase the red part to make it look more like it did before

    I'm guessing he has the full res on his computer. iPTF resizes them automatically.

    well you could right click view it. its not full size cuz photobucket resizes to 1024x768. so i guess i need to tone down the red a bit. ok.

    I actually prefer the original, the colours look more natural. The two modified ones look a little bit too fake imo.

    I agree mostly. I love what you've done with the sky and the rainbow, but use a bit less effects on the trees and much less on the house.
