    Perhaps this thing will do the trick:

    Your steps on photoshop are interesting and never know you could do that. Bookmarking it.

    thanks
    hankbeblazin and herc182, here is a "better" version, with a tweak in the Photoshop process.

    Instead of choosing Image>Adjust>Hue/Saturation... , select Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Hue/Saturation... .
    Here you do exactly what I described before.

    The results should be exactly the same.
    But in the Layers floating palette (Window>Layers) you will notice that a layer has appeared above the photo layer.
    In that layer, you see a circle with a black and a white half, a chain symbol, and a rectangle in white.
    This rectangle is what we are after. It is the layer mask. It is white, meaning the mask is empty. Click on the mask rectangel to make sure it is active.
    Now pick a brush of your choice, select black as colour, and start to paint in the photo window over the areas where you did NOT want the Hue/Saturation alterations to appear.
    You will notice two things... where you paint over, the original colour will reappear. And in the mask rectangle you will notice the black mask that you are painting.
    If by accident you painted over an area that did not need to be reset to the original colour, just select white and the mask will be painted over again.

    You can paint more subtle by changing the opacity of the brush.

    Here is a quick example of what the photo can look like with this technique:

    QUESTION, how do you make Street lights not Orange? they are naturally orange but i dont like it

    Well - this is an interesting subject - of which there is no one correct answer as each photo is open to interpretation
    and is affected by different types of light sources.
    Ultimately you WILL get acceptable results from post processing. My challenge, as ever, is to get as good as you can
    straight off the camera. I have used various different WB settings to good and bad and indifferent effect - mostly on
    my KM A200 so far - so I must have a play on the D80
    Meanwhile - here is my gentle tweak on your photo - you really have to watch it as the Green/Magenta slope is very
    tricky - you can end up with some weird effects very easily. If you try to totally correct it - it will look unreal and unatural
    - so a gentle tweak is possibly better : -
    My offering - just to join in the fun...

    I thought this was a cool shot with all the steam. Anyhow, here is the Smurfit-Stone Paper Plant in West Point, Va. Believe me, it smells worse than it looks. I also tried adding my first watermark in the corner.

    Camera: D80
    ISO: 200
    Focal Length: 116mm
    Shutter: 3 Sec.
    Aperture: F/8
    Lens: 55-200VR
    Some WB adjustments in LR
