This is one of the pics I took this Saturday. I was playing around in NC and Photoshop Elements3 trying to remove a slight color cast (or at least a perceived color cast). I've been trying to improve my color correction skills. This one seemed to have a slight yellow cast (needed a little more blue). White balance was set to Direct Sunlight -> Cloudy. Which one of these do you like best? Or should I have done something different? This was original out of the camera. NIKON D70    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/250s    Then I did some curves adjustments in NC using Ron R's technique. NIKON D70    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/250s    Then, I took the above pick and opened it in Photoshop. Used 'Remove Color Cast' and selected a spot in the white on its 'chin'. NIKON D70    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/250s    That seemed to take some of the color out of the water, so I selected the bird/rock and did a selective remove color cast as above. NIKON D70    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/250s    And for kicks, I did one in BW, just curious to see if I get any sort of reaction on this one. NIKON D70    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/250s    Sometimes when adjusting white balance, I feel like I'm removing some of the character of the warm light. Is the only way to prevent this to just use your judgement and try to 'remeber what it looked like'? PS - if someone thinks this would get a better response in the Technical forum, please feel free to move it.
