That was my thought. I can't see how it's set in the EXIF. But, it looks like WB may have been set to Incandescent (Tungsten), which will cause that kind of result when shooting in daylight lighting.

Great photo! But here is a case where a little post processing can make a measurable difference. Notice how you r daughter's face has be brightened, with the shadow now gone and the over all contrast improved. A 30 second fix.

According to the EXIF data, this picture was not taken with the camera set to iA but Aperture priority. The metering mode is center weight (iA defaults to matrix). It looks like you have the white balance set to flash or fluorescent light. Check the WB.

I agree with no-ice that I prefer the original one, but if you would be so kind, I'd love to know how you did the 30 second fix, as it might come in handy sometime


Anyway, getting back on topic, I'm curious how your next shot will look like

I really don't like bringing up past things but Wagaboo where was the shot taken? There has been some forest fires and sometimes the smoke can make it all hazy blue too! If you were close enough to one of then ... Heck it even made a would of been nice day look all orange tinted not to long ago when that fire on Vancouver Island was a flaming! All depends one which way the smoke blows! SSG .....PS U 2 look very familiar!
