Colorcasts – Four Photographs

I have no idea how WordPress reader will order these photographs so I encourage a view of the post itself. These are photos I took last spring of an Eastern Screech Owl. As you can see in the bottom two photographs there was an incredible green colorcast created by the light filtering through the leaves. I tried a number of techniques to remove it, including adjusting the white balance and some more involved techniques from professional photography tutorials but none dealt with a colorcast like this. I finally settled on using the tone slider in Lightroom. I could have used a similar technique in almost any photography software by removing as much of the green as I could. There was an effect on the leaves but I found that acceptable. Less acceptable were the changes in the color of the eyes, which I fixed with brightness and saturation tools. Sometimes the brute force/simple approach works best.
