Cosplay composition help

This is a composite from a recent cosplay shoot of mine. I am happy with the blend between the background and the cosplayers but I can't put my finger on what is wrong. I am interested in other peoples' comments

Re: Cosplay composition help

Saturation of yellow and red need to be reduced, and blue hue need to be changed to yellowish blue.

The background light quality is soft and flat and the foreground images have harsher lighting with stronger shadows.

Re: Cosplay composition help

I agree with Wolfman. Especially in the foreground. Contrast/Sharpness/Clarity is usually gradual in both photography and paintings. We're conditioned to seeing this as 'normal'. So a big jump between the figures and everything else looks abnormal. I would at least try to define a foreground, mid-ground and background and adjust Contrast/Sharpness/Clarity accordingly. I think you'll then get a better blend between the figures and the foreground, mid-ground and background.

Re: Cosplay composition help

I used LUTs but I think if you put gray layer in luminosity you will also get Hue gradient. Saturation map you can make with "selective color" in "absolute mode". Move all color sliders "blacks" to -100 and "blacks" of whites, neutrals and blacks to +100

Re: Cosplay composition help

Thanks Tulack - I should have been more specific - it was the saturation map.

Re: Cosplay composition help

I just made 4 luts as "false colors" maps. Saturation, luminosity, Hue and Temperature if anybody need it.
