to me the shot has a quite strong magenta cast to it.. that you could easily fix if you have the RAW version.. just pick a neutral point and use the white balance eyedropper tool..

but then as i look at it again, the magenta may be from some fireworks or something??

i do like the shot for what it is.. and i really think the fans will dig it..

yeah, I know how to adjust it, was just asking you what you would do and what you think is wrong....

The light is being cast from red flares that had been set off.

Heck your final colour is going to depend on a load of factors in the printing side.

There's no way to get any kind of accurate colour out of that scene. Way too many weird and mixed light sources. It looks fine on the web but I'd say you're looking at what A5+, A4+ or A3+ prints? - most of which will be hung in bars, coffeeshops and the like. So my recommendation is to make it punchy in both colour and contrast, the viewing distance will normally be quite far and the lighting dim.

You'll have to adjust differently for the gallery show of course.

I like the color of the shot and wouldn't change it. Then I might like an adjustted verion better but to me its working the way it is.

i knew you were familiar with the method of fixing it :blah:

i just explained for those that might not be familiar rather than letting it pass unmentioned and leaving then left wondering.. i guess i should have worded that differently then..

since the cast is coming from the red flares, maybe its best to leave it, idunno.. i would have to see both versions side-side to make that judgement..

good luck.
