I've color modified the base map as well - oceans look much better now - dark coast lines almost gone.
you will find that that is a issue with the map
the vast majority is a "fill" color
and near the shore line it gets darker ,then brighter, then darker again before it gets to the beach
I have been hand painting some of that after running a long running "inpainting" script
but the blue marble2 is still the best NO CLOUD map for all 12 months
I did the following on the base map:
Used the paint bucket along with selective color correction via a selection in a layer.
The bucket worked surprisingly well with the right tolerance and fill density of about 20%.
It looks much more like a blue now rather than a violet and the various gradients along coastlines were mostly kept intact.
