Our fifth and final bird (RQ-4D GLOBAL HAWK) arrived today - very special! This time they allowed me to go with the tow team, and was able to snap a few shots to make a pano before they hooked her up. Gorgeous day in beautiful Sicily!
If you raise the vibrancy and saturation the colours will be more "vivid", but the yellow-ness will still be there only more yellow.
Since digital cameras just love to turn everything a nice shade of blue, consider yourself blessed.
Which program are you using to edit?
In Lightroom, use the eyedropper to the left of the yellow/blue and magenta/green sliders at the top of the 'basic' panel to pick a target neutral.OK, thanks both! I thank you for thinking that I have anything close to proficiency with a photo editor. I generally use Lightroom CC to overall change levels, crop, etc. I have a desire to learn more about Photoshop, but to be honest I find it kind of intimidating. And I have Affinity Photo as well - it's only slightly less intimidating than Photoshop
I think I understand both your suggestions, so I'll give it a go
The known quantities on that image are probably the white bits of the star
Very possibly! I am using an iMac with an additional monitor, and the iMac looked perfect - the other monitor quite a bit different until I set the colorspace on it to Adobe RGB. It doesn't look exactly like the iMac, but pretty close. The color is a greenish-gray, but closer to gray.Chances are we're looking at slightly different colours and tones because we are looking at different monitors.
If this image looks correct on your monitor, a possible starting point for you would be to load this, and your other photo into Lightroom so you have a comparison in front of you.

Here's the result. I remember from photography classes a few decades ago that decreasing yellow increases blue, so there's a natural trade-off, but I think it's OK
