all eyes on the groom
Posted By: arkham, 05-06-2007, 07:42 PM

My wife took this shot from the front row of a good friend's wedding.

I like the way the five faces are all looking to the groom... pressure's on!

the photo is probably a little too yellow. anyone have any good tips for color balancing in photoshop? i tried taking out some yellow but that made the blues a little too blue.

I saved this photo and tried opening it in PS (Elements 5.0) - try doing a "remove color cast" and experiment with picking the black of the groom's tux.

You've got tungsten on the left fighting with the daylight from the right - so nothing will fix the photo completely, without messing the other side up somewhat. But I got a couple decent color renditions clicking on a few spots above the groom's back with "remove color cast".

hope that helps,

Thanks for the tip. I'd never used remove color cast before. Photoshop help stepped me through it.

I see your point about the opposing light sources though... It's good enough now.

Thanks again.

Remove color cast is awesome!

I just de-yellowed this one:
