    Hi Steve,

    Is the background SOOC or did you desaturate it?

    Nice shot, I did wonder about an excess of space on right and a square crop, but I like the lead in lines from background branches both side that this has.

    Cheers,

    Background is sooc. I don't know what the deal is with the WB on these shots. Histograms say everything is good, and certain areas of the photos have a cast. Some areas had a green cast , some blue. The colors of the deer look good, and the backgrounds look very cool (blue). The grass and pine tree are giving a green reflection of some sort.........................? It's almost like i shot indoors with multiple light sources. This one isn't too bad, but the background looks a touch on the cool side.


    I left a little more room on the right because the branch was a very important part of the composition and didn't look right as a stub.
    And it isn't a square crop..............5/4

    Great shot,Steve!
    WB looks good to me.I'm viewing on a calibrated and profiled monitor.
    BG colour looks good.

    Thanks jim. This series of images had a few color issues due to the lighting, i guess. The backgrounds looked cool, the greens vibrant, and some of the shadow areas of the white had a green hue. At the same time, the right side of the histograms were even, showing a neutral WB. This image here, the background looks a touch on the cool side, but not bad.

    Yes I can see that!

    No, my apologies, that's me missing out (too many) words to save time (I was rushing, me bad)

    To say what I was (fully) thinking; I did wonder about (there being) an excess of space on right and a (trying a) square crop, but I like the lead in lines from background branches both side that this has.

    That's what I meant to say

    Ever heard the phrase; "more haste, less speed"?

    Cheers,

    I agree this one isn't too bad - in fact I would say the background is pretty neutral, hence my thought it might have been desaturated (in the highlights, if nowhere else)

    When I PP mine, perhaps I'll find similar issues, I know there's (understandably) a huge difference between those shot into the light and those not backlit.

    Cheers,
