    Default editing issues...2 for CC

    During the day I had to pick up my camera for Cole, I threw Raegan in the car and ran to the pool house where we have this "weeded area". Looks like an awesome field, huh? lol Not so much! Remember ladies - look for little spots

    Anywho - I shot only a few because it was freezing and overcast. Here are the two that I like the best. My CC request is help with editing. My flow is always the same, but my images always vary! I can never keep skin tones even from pic to pic! UGH! See what I mean here! And I'm constantly too cool as you saw in Cole's photos. Now I think I'm overly warm. It might be time to recalibrate again, so maybe I'm really off? Not sure... Let me know what you think - and plays are always welcome.

    I think these look cool, actually. I mean, not warm at all. The last one I'm seeing green in her skin. She doesn't look freezing at all, which is good. I love the first one best, with the crop and adjustments.

    I'm not so great with PP ideas, I just kind of work on the fly. But these photos scream "sunshine action" to me ... maybe because I think they need to be warmed up, but I think an extra burst of sunshine would be good too.

    What a great little spot! I am not calibrated, but I think she looks a little yellow in the edits... maybe even out some red/magenta and see how that looks... I love these pictures and am SO jealous of people who live where thing GROW and fields aren't filled with rattle snakes

    yeah, I use the Phaunt one. The PW does that for me too so I just don't use it. I'm liking the Phaunt one, but I feel like it needs something else. Can't put my finger on it. Gotta get to bed, but maybe I can revisit tomorrow.

    Added a sunshine action and toned down the contrast a bit...plus selected her face and did another color balance to work on the green cast and extra yellow....(too magenta now?)

    Hello fellow North Carolinian!

    LOVE your new plays! I can't tell it was cold at all. Looks like a nice spring day. I love the sunshine action you put on there. Brightened up the photos nicely.

    Oh, the new plays look GREAT!!!!! I'm at work on a bad monitor, so take this next part w/ a grain of salt. It seems to me that there is still a bit of blue in her dress (it IS white, right?). You might try dropping the blue just a bit more even.

    You sure made this field of weeds look amazing!
