A nice boat wake wave scene from my trip to the river Friday evening. As I was processing those shots I started to play around a bit in ACR, some results of which you've already seen in the "liquid gold" post. Never content to leave well enough alone I decided to see what difference changing the white balance setting made in the look of the pics and if it made it much easier to achieve the look I was going for. Shot 1- So, here's this shot as I processed it normally. Shot 2- And this is my original effort at the "liquid gold" appearance. Shot 3- Then, in my effort to make things easier I copied Shot 1 and made one change- WB setting to "cloudy". Shot 4- And finally I went the other direction and changed the WB setting to "tungsten" and this is the result. Shot 2 is a little more reddish-orange than Shot 3, but I did that on purpose as I processed that version of the file. Rather than stumble around like I did creating Shot 2, I could have changed the WB to "cloudy" like I did for Shot 3 and adjusted the red/orange sliders in ACR and saved myself considerable time. I probably already knew this stuff, but unfortunately my brain housing group is not an infinite space (contrary to rumors otherwise) so when it gets full something has to leave to make room for new info. Much like Alzheimer's patients are always meeting "new" friends, I am constantly learning "new" things. Life is never boring around here.
