egret with color problems

Post by minniev »

I cannot solve this color cast, and am hoping someone can help. I seldom run into one I can't fix but this one seems to move from pink to green and blue to yellow with every attempt, and never looks right. It's a decent bird and a nice tree, but the color is off.

Try image..adjustment..match color..neutralize..then adjust fade and luminance….there are many other ways and it’s all to taste. Just mentioned this one cause you probably haven't tried it before....

I think I got it a little better. Dang, I never even noticed that adjustment, and I still don't know what it did. First it turned the whole image purple, is that supposed to happen? Then I fiddled with those two sliders like you said, had to push them pretty far to get normal colors. Not sure I did it right, but it seems to have improved it. Some of the trouble, I think, is a legitimate color that the white feathers are picking up from the orange trees, it just looked weird so I wanted to mitigate it.

Thanks for a new trick.!

I tried that and that’s what I usually do, but I couldn’t get where I wanted to be.

I couldn’t perceive your initially stated problem until the adjustment recommended by Frank made it clear!

It was pinkish but when I tried to take magenta down, the cast turned green. Frank's idea helped!

Good point. I seldom use curves for color casts, though I remember learning it early in my Photoshop journey. Something to revisit!
