Very nice. Personally I would have warmed the image just a little to take some of the blue tones out of her skin and hair. You would probably have to be careful not to had too much though and make the flowers seem overly saturated.

Thank you Dylan!

Here is 2 more of the same model (my youngest daughter).


5D3 with 40mm 2.8, 1/1250, f/2.8, ISO100

5D3 with 100mm 2.8L, 1/125, f/2.8, ISO800

@ Tanispyre, I agree that the colors on the flower image are a bit too cold. There wasn't much light left when I took the shot, but you're right I need to work on it a bit more. Thanks.

Priceless!
It put a smile on my face, not at all an easy feat before my first morning coffee.
I first came here because this is a top notch gear site, but not being a technophobe limited my contributions and interactions, until I discovered the image galleries.
Out of the blue image contributions such as this are pleasantly refreshing

Beautiful images, but JD you are right. It is a little blue, which I am guessing the OP might have done to prevent the oversaturation of the orange flowers. One obvious way would be to warm the image and lower the saturation of the orange and yellow channels.
This might not be applicable here, but a friend of mine had excellent prints of Bryce and Arches, with one problem- too much yellow and orange saturation. He was just using DPP and when started using LR, he was able to balance the colors perfectly.
You have a great model, Vossie. God bless!

Thanks All for the suggestions. I agree it needed some warming. As pointed out by sagittariansrock, it was not easy to find the right balance between the right color temp for the skin tones and the flowers.

In the below edit, I increased the color temp from ~7700K to ~12000K and reduced the saturation of the red, yellow and orange by ~20. Do you think this is better?





I feel they lack a bit of a punch. If anyone of you is better at raw processing then me, feel free to have a go at the raws (IMG_6376.CR2 / IMG_6381.CR2), I would very much appreciate if you could send the the resulting xmp files.

The revised version also looks good to me, but I didn't really have a problem with the original version. IMHO, it all depends upon the kind of mood you wish to convery.

Not sure what you mean by "lacking punch," but I certainly wouldn't be the most skilled post-processor among the members here to try to improve on your work, anyway.

Simply adorable!
