An old set ... but would like CC on color

I photographed my uncle & aunt and family back in July when we were at the family reunion. My aunt really wanted an updated picture for the wall. She's getting the one of the full family (all 19 of them) as a 16x20 and she might even get it as a canvas. Whoo hoo!!!! It was hard getting everyone in a good position at first but I think the pose works. I had to do some head swapping ... and I worked on these so long ago that I am not even sure which heads were originally in the shot. Lol I was waiting to hear from my aunt on what sizes she wanted so these kinda fell by the wayside. I got a hold of her this weekend so I could get them ready for order. I got a test print (just a 5x7) of one of them, and it seemed to be on the magenta side. That's why I'm here for a look at the color. I did a color balance layer to pull back some of the magenta and a bit of the red.

The leg chop of my uncle is unfortunate. I did post about that back when I was working on it. I tried doing some cloning of the bushes, but it just seemed like too much work. There's not an issue in the full family one, and that's the big one. So I'm just not going to worry about it at this point.

Here's the photos.

I think the color looks fine. The second one looks just a teeny bit warmer than the others but don't take my word for it. I'm so bad with color these days. I don't trust my eyes lol Plus i'm kind of out of it right now...being sick and all. I like the story board!

I agree that the second is warmer or has more yellow in. I looked at the rocks in the background and the bushes in the front. I am sure the family will love them, they certainly don't notice the same things we do. Love the story board and quote.

Great storyboard/collage! I agree that #2 is the yellow-est of the group. But what a great group shot!

I'll echo what pp said... looks pretty good for the most part, but #2 looks a tad warm/yellow.

LOVE the story board!

I know your Aunt is going to cherish all of these. Smile

Best,

I agree with the others. I KNOW they will cherish these! You did a great job! I think you did a great job on the entire family! I can't imagine doing that many all at once!
