    Color balance issues?

    Your color seems a bit off in some images and way off in some. What method of capture (RAW, Jpeg, or both) and how did you post process the images?

    It was purposely color "corrected" to show the way it is.
    I definitely see what you are saying, the couple just wanted them processed this way and I obliged.

    Shot Raw and processed in LR5

    Never argue with your client.

    If that's what they wanted, you did the right thing. Just didn't look quite right.

    Nice set.

    One, two, and three I like; strange they wanted the color tint on #3. Number four I like but would really like if it were shot straight on or slightly down, instead of up, and if it were cropped a bit more at the top. Good composition. Number five is excellent.

    Thanks for the very detailed feedback! Definitely appreciated.

    #3 tint is indeed not something you'd expect but they really liked it like that.
    #4 very good points! I'll think about those specifics next time for sure.
    #5 is my favorite of the entire set - thanks for the validation :)!

    So my friends finally let me edit these pictures.
    They insisted on having this green tint to them but have now seen the "edited" white balance versions and are happy with me posting them this way!

    Some favorites:

    When you delete it off flickr it disappears from any place you had the original flickr picture linked to. Like the original post.

    I prefer the stylized set, but I feel the highlights are a bit too matchy with the blue, (I think they are blue) and maybe add some yellowish hues to the highlights. I'd kill that green cast in the skin. Not sure if LR is well equipped for that deep of color work though. I could be wrong I just know how to do it in PS, so that's what I do. Curves, color channels, and just go to highlight, mids, or shadows adjustments from there. Mask, and opacity as needed...
