I have no argument with that, although of course the photographer might have a particular look in mind.

Re: Virtue Of Innocence

Guess I'd have to ask the same question SINISA is, why?

If you don't want to put a ton of work into it, as you have CS3, the easiest would be to open your NEF photo in the RAW editor and just use thetemperature slider (the first slider on the basic tab) and move it to the left to cool it (the blue area). The HSL tab will also do wonders. If you shoot RAW, you might was well use the RAW editor to make your life easy.

Because, my monitor actually needs calibrating, and the tweaks I felt were
necessary to complete my vision, I couldn't achieve in Adobe Camera Raw.
I needed to push the image into PHS CS3 to tweak. But first things first, I really do need to calibrate my laptop monitor. Thanks to all who commented, all your thought processes were very informative.

Re: Virtue Of Innocence

you need to process your raw files and save them as 16bit PSD or TIFF. then you do corrections.

you should NEVER do any corrections to JPEGS. this is abc of digital imaging.

Sinisa again, you are correct, I'm still in the learning phase of every aspect in becoming a professional photographer. Also, I never claimed that I knew what I was doing, which is why I CHOOSE to post in fine forums such as this one here. To solve the many mysteries of what I believe I should know, and learn. Look, the last thing I want to come off as being, is a know it all who is arrogant . I just want to climb the right ladders
to all the right questions towards all the truely relevant answers, to hopefully one day land me where I believe, and dream to I can be. So I say to you and all who posted, thank you. I really want to lay this topic to rest. Trust!!! I know I screwed up, but I choose walk away from this, as a lesson learned ( Calibrate Monitor, check/ Convert RAW files to usable 16bit PSD, or TIFFS, check).

Re: Virtue Of Innocence

Once your out of the learning phase, you in the ground.
If you come to know it all, there will still be differences of opinion.
Your work stands for itself, excellent, especially how you work your colors.

Re: Virtue Of Innocence

I think your original photo looks pretty good. I just changed the focal point to the smile and made no other changes.

Before looks good!

I don't get why you'd make that after shot, but hey, it's your kid, I'm sure he looks like that.
