Re: where to start

maybe instead of cloaning, change the yellow to green with hue/sat. then mask only the effected. you could also try matching the blue but i think a light green will look good here.

would have tryed it my self but the thumbnail is way to small...

Hope it helps,

Re: where to start

I would agree. Some other thoughts.... the only elements that look a bit off are the skin tones. The water is rather mixed, as you have evening sun, shallow water, shadows, and a long depth of field. So, rather than change all the water, sample close by and just tweak the water a bit based on its surrounding colors. I prefer to see some of the yellow water become more blue. The other elements, like the bugs and animals look fine, even their clothing is pretty good.
