Nice detail in this image, But it appears to be suffering from a strange colour cast........Both on the subject & backdrop....!

Near as I can tell it's kinda yellowy/greenish......Like the lighting temprature was not quite right.......Or maybe your monitor is telling you something else ( Looking at this on a recently calibrated screen by the way )........!

Not easy to offer any suggestions, Without asking a bunch of questions, Like whats your lighting set up, Or what did you use in the WB area......Or screen & processing set-up etc etc......!

Sorry to appear harsh........Thought you'd appreciate an accurate appraisal......!

Thanks, just the sort of feedback I was looking for...It would be easy to say (and get away) that this was my first time with this type of lighting. However, I'm on a steep learning curve here here so all feedback is important.

Lighting setup was basic - A Sunpak PZ42X on my 350D pointed up, swivelled to bounce of the ceiling/wall to the left while a Vivitar 273 unit was placed out of sight at the base of the background wall to light the background. WB was set to the camera's own flash setting. The frame was overexposed to have a 'white-out' effect.
