Any Advice On 'Bad Colour'

Mon Dec 20, 2004 4:43 am

I have recently had this photo rejected for bad colour. I am the first to admit that I have had a lot of rejections in my time, but never for this reason.

The only think that I can think did not satisfy the screener is the green of the grass. Otherwise at this time I am stumped.

I have altered the levels of the original, as I always do, but I have not tinkered with the colours in the photo in any other way. So otherwise the colours must be relatively accurate. I had a number of other photos accepted from this particular morning. Has anyone got any suggestions for me?

The colour is off but it's not THAT bad (easily fixable that is). Check the RGB values on the whites - it's not true white. I had a quick play and came up with this - it's not spot on but looks a lot more balanced:

Something half-way between the original and Mike's version would be about right.

Thanks so far Mike and Tamsin. I'm not used to altering the specifics of the colour in the photos.

Two questions - what should have alerted me to the fact that things were not quite right? Also, can you suggest the best way to alter things in a moderately idiot-proof way. I have some vague ideas, but would be grateful to hear from someone more expert.
