Lotus Pond, Hyderabad at night I

Posted by

This shot did not under go too much post processing, just a little levels adjustment, Match color->Luminance and a little sharpening. The trick is to select the custom white balance. It gets rid of the orange cast that you would normally get if you had shot with "Auto" white balance.

PS: I have not given up B/W posts yet. Its back to B/W series from tomorrow again. I guess a little color wont hurt.

PS. Thanks for the critique in my last post . It was not a good post--I agree.

I'm surprised you could get this colors just by adjusting white balance. I'll have to do some experiments on my own. The focus is crisp!

Nice work with the white balance, normally i would use "incandescent" to get closet to the actual lighting. As the auto one gives a very yellowish tone.
