The Blue Continues..

Sat Aug 12, 2006 9:00 am

I just did a redo on this after it got badcolor thanks to the blue cast.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/n353nwlasedit.jpg

I used Royal's #s in color balance 5, -3, 0


Looks a little better but this blue cast really sucks. Can this shot be saved? Should I go more in color balance? How do you avoid this problem? And no I am not buying a Canon  no

What's wrong with PhotoShop's "Remove Color Cast" tool?

Just touch any spot that *should* be a neutral shade of white or grey (ie the fuselage). Works every time...

The colour cast is still there in your edit.

Not this time.

Perhaps, maybe eeever so slightly...But still a big improvement.

Sometimes you've gotta touch a more "fringe" location of the aircraft, to get it just right:

Hi

Quoting NIKV69 (Thread starter):

As with all shots a standard colour corection will not work as a shot with a red aircraft will always come out more cyan.

Go on but a Canon and you will loose the cyan/blue cast for good!!

Thanks for all the help guys, the pic seems to be too blue. No biggie, it's not like I am not going to be at the Sunset viewing area again.

I rarely get this blue problem so I will stay with Nikon  biggrin

I know 3 people that shoot Nikon and I see the blue in MOST of their shots. Not trying to start the C vs N war, but its a fact.

If you like green better than blue, you could get my Olympus DSLR, which occasionally gives me a green cast!

Each edit is better than the last, though, so the pic should be saveable.

Only having a joke about getting a Canon! Nikon just needs a bit more time in PS colour balance. But dont spend too long looking at the screen as your eyes will start to auto correct the colour for you. Two minutes is about as long as you can colour balance before your eyes loose the plot!

If you're suffering the blue or green colour cast
(or even a RED colour cast if you are a Canon shooter  laughing  )

...this is my quick and crude method.

Using the Curves Tool (I'm offering The GIMP as an example)
Change the R.G.B. Colour Channel to the colour that is the problem.
(I've chosen Blue)
Where you see the 'peak' distribution of that colour, just click under on the line below that peak and watch the cast dissapear.
Try a few positions below the line and check the variations.
It's only a few extra seconds work

Of course, if you want to mimic a Canon shooter, choose the RED channel and click above the line.

Ha! Ha!
