Yellow/red cast

The attached image has been critiqued by one side as having too much yellow, the other too much red. I would appreciate any and all suggestions of how to satisfy all parties. I am a newbie to color correction so please be gentle with me. Thank you

To my eye, the first thing that hits me is that this looks almost flouro. I'd drop the saturation quite a bit. This still leaves a yellow domination over the nose and forehead, but by taking a sample of the skin lower down and then painting over those areas in colour mode, you can then adjusted the depth of recolouring with the opacity slider

i started the same as cassidy and lowed the saturation in hue/sat but stayed in hue/sat and went to the yellow channel and moved that channel more to the red and dropped the saturation a bit on the yellows as well.

Hmm... I just played with hue/saturation, color balance, and selective color, and this is what I came up with. I agree with previous posters, it's about to get blown out and looks pretty flourescent.

Color Correction

Chrissto, the image is over saturated and it appears that all of the channles have been clipped, likely by a levels adjustment gone wrong. The image does not have a lot of areas with fine detail, so the most effecient way to restore it might be a blank layer set to Color blend mode and paint over the off colored areas by sampling nearby colors similar to the quick example I have attached.
Regards, Murray

Sorry can't understand with which color are you coloring in the new layer.

Using Lab

Well I tried another route to arrive at the same sort of correction. I converted to Lab Mode and used a levels adjustment layer. I then rotated the A and B channels clockwise to desaturate them some.

Lab Mode

Hi Angel Ice.
Lab mode is a different way of expressing color. We usually use RGB Mode for most of our work (Red, Green, &Blue) or CYMK Mode which is used for printing. Lab uses Lightnes and A & B channels. Before using Lab mode though its a good idea to have a good understanding of RGB and photoshop.

The advantage of Lab is that one can alter color without affecting luminosity or vice versa.

I am not a LAB expert. I read Dan Margulis "Photoshop Lab Color" last fall for the first time and I plan on reading it again this fall too. Its an excellent book, but for me I need to read it a few times to understand it better.
