View Full Version : Green Water

I took this picture at night with the pool lights on, obviously. Any ideas about getting the green tint out of the water? Is there a filter availabe that will render the color more correct?

Maybe take some yellow out of the picture in PP.

Is this a photo of a photo or taken through a window?

Whats up with the reflection of that guy in the white polo in the bottom right?

THe light in the water and failing on the rocks in the background appear to be the same color, so it would be corrected with a WB setting. A good place to start anyway.

Thanks for the replies. I actually didn't notice the "ghost" until I had uploaded the photo. It's a long exposure shot so that's me in the shot. I wanted to see how warm the water was. Do you guys know of any filters that will affect the lighting. These are normal incandescent lights.

I don't know any filters, but try setting your WB to incandescent lights, if that doesn't help try setting a custom setting - its cheaper than a filter.

LOL - thats cool man. Sorry, I didn't mean to jump on ya if it sounded that way.

This is a good time to shoot in RAW. Then you can fix the WB in post without affecting the quality of the photo, and no guesswork required with filters or WB settings.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

AParmly: no worries, no offence.
