Help With Color Correction

Mon Dec 24, 2007 5:32 pm

rejected for color. Does it have a blue cast or something else?

Any comments would be appreciated!

Cheers,

Kevin

Hi there Kevin,

Indeed you have a blue cast. Adjustment of the blue channel with your curve tool will greatly improve your shot.


Good luck.

Hi Kevin

Blue colour cast for sure. Was that the final colour result from the camera?

Good luck with it.  Smile

thanks guys, not sure why I didn't notice it before it was rejected :P.
Looking back at the raw, I guess it wasn't that blue so it must have happened during post processing.

Thanks again!

I wouldn't mind seeing a write up for master class on handling color casts.
This shot had a alot of space to the right on the blue channel histogram, and the blue got worse when I adjusted to close the gap on the right so obviously I'm not reading it correctly?
Anyway I got it fixed, but thanks for providing an example to work to!

Cheers,

Kevin
