I revisited some old shots and tried getting a better PP of them. The original shots were marginal due to the strong morning sunlight with the moose in shadows. I was shooting into the sun mainly yet could get my self worked around the moose to get the sun behind me. I always have trouble getting the image out of these shots and this attempt tonight did yield a passable image.

For what you had to work with I'd say it came out ok. To me it looks like it has a bit of a purple tint to it but it might just be the way the sun was hitting them.

On a side note, I bet that was a sight to see. Hope to see some more and thanks for sharing.

Great shot. Like you said the color is a bit off, but shots like that don't happen every day.

For the colour, get the hell off the vibrancy or saturation slider! Tweak the WB a little more yellow, and then you've got a great shot to go off.

?? Ok but I don't use the vibrancy (don't know what that is) or the saturation sliders. I have used the RGB saturation since about 2006. The original is just a mess to begin with as the moose were in shadows and yet the background was really bright due to being backlit by the sun. I mainly tweak levels and use shadow/highlight to try and pull out an image. I'll play with the WB as you suggested, the original is really blue, thanks.

Hello, James! I can just imagine what this image looked like originally - I've had plenty of moose images like that myself. They are so dark it makes them quite difficult to expose for unless the light is actually on them, which it seldom is. I think you did a great job of saving what was probably a close to hopeless shot.

Okay I added a channel mixer layer and pulled back the blue to 72%. Looks okay on my monitor but I'm not so sure it's properly profiled.
