out of the blue...

|Steve (LordPotty) admirably confessed that this image was looking blue--something that had bugged me as well since posting. |
Am I allowed to workshop my own photo??
Anyway, in curves I took down blue highlights then lifted RGB highlights while holding down the darker bits. Then added a bit of saturation to this densely shaded scene. I think this is an improvement--thanks Steve!
This was a "grab shot" captured on my Nikon D70 while my Fuji S2 was anchored down to the 500/f4 monster. In general, I find it a challenge to get nice colors out of that D70. Especially in shady conditions--merely warming up color temperature leads to a sepia-toned muddiness, I find. The Fuji, on the other hand, gives Velvia-like colors in all conditions, including shade. D200 is better than the D70, but still not Fuji-colored. I'll now tackle this issue in a forum.
