Here is my pic that I took yesterday.

Grant me a little slack seeing as how this is only the second picture I have taken with my new camera (DX6490). I just bought it like 3-4 days ago.

Hi Blue;

Good job on this shot. You'll love the 6490. Granted there are lots of cameras in that niche right now, but I have been really pleased with the results over the last five months that I have had mine.

Welcome to the club.

Nicely done, a don't have a lot of lizards where I live so I enjoy seeing them.

What photo editor do you use? I'm assuming the slight color cast is not intentional... some editors can fix this up easily, in others it would be really hard.

Thanks!

I use psp7 and 8. I occasionally use ps7. But, I normally do stuff like artwork and drawing (Waccom Drawing pad) on paintshop pro, I am a lot more familiar with that. But, I do use Photoshop as well.

What editor do you think would be best to fix this?

Thanks!

I was scrolling slowly down the photo, wondering where the lizard was. It wasn't until I got to the bottom that I saw that the "growth" on the tree was the lizard! It's head gave it away. Those buggers sure have good camoflage. Against a real predator, anyway. It couldn't hide from BluePositivity:G

Nice capture

I use PhotoShop CS, I've never used PSP.

If you can find something which you know should be middle grey, you could use the eyedropper in levels (I think that is where it is) and that will color shift all the RGB channels together to make it grey.. and correct everything else in the picture at the same time. The problem is that I'm not sure there is anything there that should be that color.

Plugins like Color Mechanic would do it too, but that costs money. I've never used it, but I know people who like it.
