I was finally able to snatch a picture of one of my arch enemy blackbirds that keep rummaging through my garbage (they will eat right through the garbage bags and pull all of your trash out). The problem is I had white balance set on manual indoors....and of course this is the result. Can it be fixed?

How is this??
Very quick, could do better if I spent more time at it... Photoshop, Levels adjustment using highlight tool to pick the fence.. Which basically turns it white(ish)..

I'm afraid the WB is too far off to save.

I've never tried posting a picture here before, so I hope I'm doing this right...

Anyway, I just played with your image a bit in Elements 2. Did this help?

I didn't have any particular "formula"... just eyeballed it and played around with color variations under the enhance menu.

I also believe timewarp did a great job ..I just thought I would try to pop the bird.

Also it would have been easier on the original photo.

Wow, that does look much better. The picture was taken with alot of sunlight but the alteration makes it look like it was taken on a cloudy day, but the colors are pretty accurate. How exactly did you do it so I can try it on the original?

A lot depends on what PE you have but if yours allows a levels layer open a levels layer and then try the eyedropers this photo worked better for me with the middle eyedropper (gray) and click on the legs that gets the W balance very close.

then create a new layer and if you have the Highpass filter available use it with a radius of about 3 and then click hard light or in this case overlay in the blending options.

Flatten and your done.

This explains the eyedropper

and high pass filter
