Just wondering what shot you guys thought the white balance looked best on?

    I think somewhere inbetween. One is too yellow, and two is just a touch too blue. On my iPad, anyway

    15524779-Ti.gif Except that I believe that there is mixed lighting in the scene. On the left I believe that there was a tungsten light (yellowish) and on the right I suspect a fluorescent light, because I detect some extra cyan.

    If you have imaging software which allows layers, keep the first version (which has the most yellow and the most pleasing pumpkin) as the base layer and just for the pumpkin, and use the second version for the rest of the image. Use layers and masking to expose just the pumpkin and pumpkin guts.

    For the second version I would reduce both the yellows (a bit) and the cyan (a lot), unless you want to also protect the yellows just for the skin tones (I would not except for the hand on our right).

    I can demonstrate, if you wish.
