Thanks guys, not sure why or how I got the halo on the right
It's in the original shot, though the contrast boost magnified it a lil'

After many previous attempts with my 1.50 euro glass, I came out with these...
Glued a cokin 49mm adapter to the glass with bluetak, now using a kenlock 35mm manual focus lens at f11, 30secs.

Am off work for a bit, so I'm heading out tomorrow with this around Stratford Upon Avon, Hopefully for something decent. Got to sort the tape on mine though, It's been stored and it is a bit worse for wear!

Looking forward to that Radders, one of my last efforts with the welding glass was in Stratford, a shot of the theatre across the river.

how do you guys get rid of the green cast? Just normal color tweeking or are you using some kind of "preset" or action or secret magic thing?
I have tried a couple of times but never managed anything even CLOSE so what you show us here!

Very nice photos... :)

Everyone probably has their own favorite software, tools and methods. How you do it will depend on the software you are using and whether you shoot Raw or Jpeg.
First off you want to shoot Raw. Then to get rid of the green color cast it's mostly just a matter of getting the White Balance corrected.
Most Raw Converters such as DPP, LR and ACR all have an eye dropper tool for adjusting the white balance that all do a great job. Just point the dropper tool at an area that you know should be white then click and that should do it or get it very close to normal. Apps such as ACR and LR also allow you do do other more specific HSL and Color adjustments beside the usual RGB channels, as well as split toning which works well on this sort of photography.

I generally shoot Jpeg.
In Photoshop for me it is quite simple.
I first go to the IMAGE dropdown and select AUTO COLOR.
This gets me close and then I tweak it a bit using CHANNEL MIXER or COLOR BALANCE.

I spent yesterday hiking at Pixley Falls and some of the regions surrounding it in New York.
