Hi Sanj.
Very emotive shot. With regard to your question, is it too orange, is this how you remember the scene looking, or were you trying to create a feeling of golden hour light?
In the former case, no it is not too orange, in the latter case then yes a little.  :)

Cheers, Graham.

Good news / Bad news.  These Crocs are no longer backlit but they just sat there so no action.  Taken from a boat in Lake Chamo, Ethiopia......

It was early morning. First light. So it was orange. But perhaps not so much. :)

Not furry things, but carnivores just the same. Collared Lizard and Desert Horned Lizard.
I can't list my gear. I'm too ashamed. Everything I have is crippled and obsolete.

Recent photo of American black bear in Crescent Meadow, Sequoia National Park, USA.

Not the best photo. I only had my 70-200 f2.8L (on a 1D4) and really needed much longer. This photo has been cropped quite a bit (300% maybe). Due to the foliage in front of bear, I could not shoot at f2.8 because leaves in front would be sharp and bear would be out of focus. Bear was too small in viewfinder to see clearly for manual focus. So I stopped down to f8 and let autofocus lock on leaves and trust depth of field to keep bear relatively sharp.
