Color help

Finally looking at my Halloween pictures. This is SOOC ... I have tried playing with the color, and maybe it's fine as it is as my plays haven't been great. But I need other eyes to look at it. I uploaded the full size version so if you're a Flickr friend, you can grab the full size and play if you want.

I'm only printing it for the scrapbook page, so I'm not doing anything crazy with it. But I still want the color right.

Exposure: 0.008 sec (1/125)
Aperture: f/3.2
Focal Length: 47 mm
Exposure: 0.00
ISO Speed: 400

Gwen I think the white balance is on the cool side, I see blue (cyan) in her skin. It took me a really long time to get used to how warm correct WB truly is.. the digital grey card helped with this, though even still I don't like how warm it is!

Actually, I take it back, it looks much better on this monitor! Smile

ROFL

I have a digital gray card on my birthday list, so I'm hoping to get that so I can get better at the WB in PP. Wink

Sorry gals. Just saw this post. I got the background black by doing selective coloring and choosing black and upping the black. Then I did Filter, Other, High Pass, 6.9 then go to Images Desaturate and changed to soft light and adjust opacity to 20%. Then I warmed her up a bit then ran noiseware and sharpened for web. I didn't have the original so it looks a bit jagged.
