Am I too Picky ...

  1. THis should be posted in the technical question forum but here it is since this is a portrait.

    The Picture


    If you look carefully, you will see a yellowish banding light on the left side of the picture (in her right side chin, cheek and going up fading in the shadow. The picture was taken at the golden light time. This is not the result of the processing, it was even more obvious in the original image.

    Am I too picky, I find the color transition to be on the weird side ...
  2. Good shot Yves. I think it is really nice!! :)  :)  :)  :)  :)

    It is a nice picture and I would not have noticed the banding unless you mentioned it.
  4. What banding?

    Beautiful image.

    Guess we can't see it on a net photo. May be to small. I don't see anything either.

    Great portrait of her though.

    I suspect it's more of a (shutter!) WB issue

    After seeing Frank's redo, (good job U.C.), taking out some of the yellow, I don't see anything out of the ordinary now. I think it's more the way the light and shadow is falling across her face. So, how'd you get it so silky smooth? And, Yves are you shooting in sRGB, or converting after the fact? And, why no Hue increase this time?
  7. Re: I suspect it's more of a (shutter!) WB issue

    You're probably right ... Light and Shadow hitting ...

    Silky smooth because I processed with a layer of smoothness in PS

    Shot sRGB, bad me ...

    No hue plusses because I was experimenting, Hue Plus would have made this one worse too as it tends to the green ...

  8. Thx UF, I guess I was too much into it I guess.

    You did notice it though right ?
  9. Yes, it became very obvious once I imported the picture into Photoshop. I think it was a natural effect, from the afternoon light, but in the absense of a background to support it, it came across as a yellow cast.
  10. Hey Yves,

    Can you post a 100% crop of the area. I see the banding you're talking about but would like a more detailed view.
