that's mighty good correction, but cant help but think you'd be better off with a cheapo 10 stop from ebay.

the cast is not nearly as severe as that welding glass (amazing that it can even be recovered).

Just create a custom white balance and the results turn out great. My piece of welders glass was $6 and change.

do you have much noise in the blues?

given how green everything was ooc, the blue and red channels would have been fairly underexposed. the custom wb would have pushed those channels hard to get to where you ended up

Thanks guys.

Everything was done in LR4. I spent a lot of time getting the colors as natural as possible. With the WB, I used the eyedrop tool and that got me close. I twicked it from there. Then I played with the tones until I was close to what looked natural to my eyes. I used the gradiant tool for the sky to bring out the blue. I did my usual NR and sharpening and that was about it. About 30 minutes total. Which is a lot more time than I usually spend editing a single image. I guess an ND filter would have made things somewhat easier, but my lens has an 82mm filter size and I already had a welding glass so that's what I grabbed.

you have to forgive me as I don't do that type of photography but does a flash really make that much of a difference when shooting a subject that far away when using a 300mm or 400mm lens?
