    Yes, Neil, the logs possibly seem a bit on the blue side. But the trouble with this scene is that there isn't any pure white from which to calculate a true White Balance.

    And I may consider a slight crop from the bottom and left side to reduce the area of out of focus foreground just a little.

    Thanks for that advice Geoff,I went back into Lightroom and adjusted the colours of the wood as someone else said they had a purple look to them which I agreed with and thanks for the idea of the crop.It certainly helps when another set of eyes looks at a picture and quite often spots an obvious mistake to be corrected.Cheers, Neil.

    It is an interesting shot. I prefer the revised version but still find the log colour a bit 'off' somehow. I'm not even sure what is striking my eye wrong - likely still a bit purply for my taste.

    But old logs do turn a darkish grey colour.

    I suppose you could try adding a fraction of red to see what that does, although it may well be in vain if you lose the true green colour from the leaves.

    Had another look at this in Lightroom,adjusting the red slider did'nt make any difference,however the purple slider which was at -62 I moved completly across and this did seems to marginally improve it.Thanks for your thoughts on this, Neil.
