My first post in ocf. I haven't had time yet to read this string from the beginning.. but hopefully will find where I'm going wrong. I was using a 580EXII bouncing off a silver umbrella. .. 5D wb set on daylight.. and I needed to warm it up in LR . .. even so, I still feel like the horse is blue and it lacks overall pop. I need some fresh eyes on this. .. I feel like I've worried & worked this image so much that I can't see what wrong any more. What do y'all think?
Yes, I think its a great shot. The background is a little distracting. Since you probably cant shoot it again, you might mask off the background and bring it down a couple stops until its darker than the foreground. I personally dont see anything wrong with a little vignette in this shot, very subtle darkening of the edges.
