Seeking advice re Bad Color Rejection
1 Attachment(s)
Hello! I wonder if anyone might be able to advise me regarding this photo, rejected for bad color? I'm thinking it's too yellow? Thanks, David

Actually too red. Dial that back and maybe give it a little bit of saturation.

This photo was also rejected for bad color, as well as bad crop and sharpening - too soft. I'm starting to wonder if a monitor calibration might be in order. Also wondering if I want to shoot sRGB, or Adobe RGB, or something else? My monitor offers a few color choices, including different Kelvin temps. Everything should match, right?

Would you guys ever buy a used Colormunki from ebay? I have a pc and laptop. Other than those two devices I wouldn't expect to use the Colormunki again. At least for the way I understand its use.

Anyway, below are two attempts at correcting this photo. I took a lot of photos both RAW and jpeg. Maybe I should begin with the RAW copies? If this image cannot be salvaged I have plenty others I can try and learn with.

How do I make a duplicate image in Lightroom? I only know how to do so in Photoshop, so far!

Here are the photos. Thanks for your coaching and expertise in advance, to all those who reply!

Also, can I link this post to photos in my gallery here?

You came really close with those two. Maybe back off the red just a little bit more. And as a heads up, you might wanna rotate CCW just a tad.

As for the Lightroom and Photoshop stuff, I'm nowhere near knowledgeable enough in those to help so I'll let someone else chime in.
