Been Playing around with some tonemapping again. Iam struggling a bit to get rid of the blue casts on the image , using photomatix pro 4.13. V2 is the original unedited version.

I like it. Surreal yet real if you know what I mean! The magenta/blue cast shouldn't be hard to knock back a little? What software you have?
thanks Brian I have CS5 and Photomatix pro 4.13
Like this picture and the colours are great but would love to have seen it on flat ground. Really nice look though.
Hi Prabh ,
Im assuming you're tone-mapping a single image image (as you only posted one original ), rather than a sequence of exposures ready for tone-mapping hdr.
You have a few options.
If its a single shot , have a go at copying the original image over the tone mapped result and use a layer mask , low opacity brush , to bring back in some of the original scene without the cast.
Tone-map to taste , and do another less saturated version and combine (layer mask) those parts you feel need the need to emphasise / mute.
Create a hue sat adjustment layer and target the blues (ideally with the eyedropper) then reduce sat until your happy.
Have a play with "image adjust , colour balance" and target the blues again although that method is more of a global rather than a targeted adjustment.
Not my cup of tea, as you know.
It's good to see you're still working at it though.
Thanks Dave, Ill give it a shot
I think V1 is overdone, and V2 is underdone, so for me, the answer is between the two.
Vq does have a strong cyan or blue cast also, that can be toned down as Dave mentions.
Ive downloaded both and layered at about 40% (40% of the modified version is showing) and used colour balance and simply reduced blue and cyan. Cropped a little from the left.
Very colourful shot,
