Re: Its better on top

LOL Never thought I'd say this about pigs, but this pic is delightful, Paul They 're smiling Excellent use of selective focus. WB looks a little off, but perhaps that's the effect you were after. A super image that made me smile

Re: Its better on top

Got a smile from this one. Agree that maybe the white balance should not be as warm, but a really funny, fun image.

Re: Its better on top

There was a warming lamp over the litter that is giving this "warm" light to the photo. I did cool it down a bit but the piglets were really quite pink and I tended to loose that the cooler I went.
I would appreciate any suggestions as to how I might accomplish cooling it down while preserving the pink piggies - I just can't figure out how.
Thanks

Re: Its better on top

If you shot in RAW, then changing the Kelvin is a slamdunk in ps2 ACR.

'nuff said.

Re: Its better on top

Paul, I had a go, but after I uploaded I saw I'd over-done the cooling down, resulting in blue + magenta patches (over-corrected the warmth + the tint). A tricky one I admit, because of the apparent mixed lighting here. It can be corrected using WB adjustment, but needs fine-tuning, if you want to have a go

Re: Its better on top

Hi Paul.
Dropped down to selective color layer adjustment, dropped the yellow down, then the megenta adjusted so it looked more pink and then darked the blacks in that section. Have never seen a baby pig in real life, so it looks like they have white hair?

Re: Its better on top

Boofers, that is sooooo weird 'cos that is the identical result I got but I rejected it 'cos of the blue/magenta casts on the far pig's face + the nearest pig-leg.

Re: Its better on top

it looks like a by-product of the cyan I adjusted to bring in the white. didn't even see it, I was looking at the pig, or should I say I was capitvated by the little piggy.

Re: Its better on top

HaHa! This is great! Had a go myself - concluded that really you back to original and adjust the yellow cast towards red and then pull back on the red (if that makes sense!)



Adjusted Levels, changed yellow hue to more red, burned BG, desaturated areas

Re: Its better on top

Yours still has an orange cast, Mark, + the far pig's face still has a strong blue/magenta cast, + you forgot to burn back the burnt highlight on the main pig's shoulder which resulted from your editing (I got the same in mine).

This has got to be the trickiest image to correct that I've seen yet on pixalo ... what a challenge ... first one to get it 100% right throughout the image gets free rep

Re: Its better on top

personally i would nt worry to much about the face of the bg piglet as main focus is on the top piglet then the one behind Suppose you could crop down left side and get rid of the back piglets face.

Brings back some good memories.Obviously they must look older than what they are ,if still using warming light over them.

suppose the other thing to consider ,if taking another.First find out if there is second reason to warming lamp.But i would be having shot set up first (there again comes down to situation,in other words how good you know owner of pig etc) then turn lamp off JUST for the taking of picture.But as i stated above ,really comes down to situation at hand and reasons etc .just a thought for future reference.

Pretty dang good, Sue. If you could lighten up just a bit more without blowing the major piglets skin, that would be great.

See how much you are learning here!!!!
