Impromptu shot of my girlfriend while rock climbing. =)

Original:

Adjusted white balance after WaHooCrazy7 enlightened me that white balance can be fixed in processing:

I like the composition of the shot, its playful, but she also has that look in her eye that she mean's business at the same time. That being said the white balance looks a tad bit off, her skin appears very yellow to me, but it might just be my monitor.

cheers!

It's definitely off. Only the second time using my new T2i, forgot to set the white balance and left it on auto. =\

Thanks for the comments, I think this was my best shot of the night and it had nothing to do with rock climbing :D

A very simple fix in processing. Most good photo editing programs have a white balance correction tool built in.

Hey, my name is Daniel. =P

Thanks for the quick edit, it does look a lot better. I haven't loaded up Photochop in a while..I'll mess with the photo and see what I come up with tomorrow.

Does Lightroom 3 have a way to change the white balance?

Edit: found it. Edited the original. How does it look?

Don't edit an original post because that messes up any comments about that picture. Post a new version of the original and then we can compare before and after.
