Default Hue (color cast) problem

I can fix the part about bad information, I didn't type what kind of locomotive was leading but the hue thing I don't understand, too much sky? In photoshop I adjusted contrast and saturation both +5, and brightened it just a little with curves.

It looks absolutely fine to me but I guess if anything reduce the green.

Looks good to me. Then white balance appears correct to me on my monitor.

Maybe the screeners see "The Dress" as white and gold!

I would go back without the saturation, or select just the grass and pull that back, the green overwhelms?

Interesting looking at the cars, lot of people with time on their hands.

I'll give it another try, a little tricky without much information to go on...

If they do, they're in good company. Apparently about 70% of people see it as white and gold, me included.

Which means 70% see it wrong. (wrongly?)

what about bumping up the color temperature/white balance until you get a hint of yellow in the clouds over the horizon.

"Auto-adjust" thinks the scene needs to be brighter.
Colors seem lacking in vibrance.

It was accepted already, I guess everyone sees something different on their monitor after all! And Jim I didn't even know what type of locomotive it was really, and it's so far away the number is unreadable anyway...it's another yellow wide cab as far as I was concerned!

Your photo conjured up a similarity in my mind to this overrated piece of crap:



(I'd much rather look at yours than that one any day of the week!)

Well with no direction at all on what hue was over the image I just reduced the saturation by -2. I hadn't played with the colors for my original upload anyway so I really didn't know what else to try, and I guess it worked. I thought +5 was pretty mild anyway, but maybe this time it was too much...

Question- did whoever shelled out $4,338,500 for this masterpiece like it, or did they just buy it in hopes of flipping it for more?
