    A photo I took yesterday in raw and processed with gimp- only window light used. What do you think? Any improvments?

    Thank you!

    My immediate thought when I first opened this photo (earlier today, still having lamp light as the only light source around me - now day light comes in through the window) was "Oh, how yellow!"
    It still is quite yellow (background, hair), but viewed in daylight, her skin tones no longer seem AS yellow as they did earlier, but still ... I think I'd work on the colour balance some and take out some yellow and see if not the skin tones could be made more natural still...!?!?

    I think it's a little heavy on the saturation. Nice shot, though! A keeper!

    Sharp picture (from what i can see on my work monitor). As said, its seems pretty yellow and it seems a tad under-exposed, but that could be from the yellow

    It still has some color cast issues. The monitor I'm on right now always shows things a bit warm, but that's pretty orange/yellowish still.

    Color balance is off on all three. Did you use a W/B card to set custom white balance?
    Get yourself a "balance smarter" and set custom white balance.

    I use the 20" model
