    Default Newly calibrated - CC appreciated

    I finally calibrated my moniter this week(hooray for christmas presents) and I'm still trying to get used to my "new" monitor colours. I don't have the SOOC of this image (at work), just my 1st and 2nd edit. I still saw orange on the forehead (his right) in the first edit and then did a colour balance and hue/sat layer to lessen the orange in the 2nd edit (Is this an ideal way to do it). Can you see a difference? better? worse? Thanks all

    Technical: Taken in a small apartment with bad apartment lighting camera left window camera right. SS: 1/80 f/3.2 ISO 500, flash fired, shot in manual, sharpened for web,. I had to run Noiseware as the SOOC was super noisey.

    1st edit:


    2nd edit:

    The second edit does look better.

    When you have 2 light sources with very different spectral signatures (like sunlight and a tungsten light bulb) though, it is very hard to color balance correctly after the fact. You did a very good job. But if you want to really check your calibration, I would use a picture with only one kind of light source.
