A lovely model, Phil, don't remember seeing her whilst I was there. A very nice capture, well processed - the new backgrounds ain't bad, either!

I like V1 the more as the yellow hue on the arms lessened to an extent, Bill.

Well taken image with a nice background. I do think that a little work on hue/saturation helps to make the skin tone better though with V2 -9 on the hue slider made a big difference and took away that very yellow skin tone, with V1 -22 with just the yellow selected in hue saturation worked a treat.

Basicalyy a good shot. Does need to ne sharpened a little for the web. It does indeed have a very yellow cast to the skin colour, most obvious in V2. What was the original colour of the background? Thats usually a guide.

Theres a very reliable guide for Caucasian skin colour when its measured in CMYK. The guide is that Yellow should be very slightly higher than magenta, and magenta should by 2 to 3 times the value of Cyan.

When I measure this, Yellow = 35%, magenta = 7%, and Cyan = 0%.

I ended up with a balance that yellow = 18 %, magenta = 16% and Cyan = 1 %, - so its clearly too yellow. This is changed most accurately using the colour balance tool.

This is most likely due to a white balance error. Nikons get skin colour almost right all the time.

I would be happy to send you my mod if you send me a PM Phil.
