I think the biggest issue is WB, it looks like there's to much red. Here's a quick edit, with a WB adjustment and only +12 on exposure. Might want to adjust your lighting to decrease the specular highlights on the right.
@smoke665 : I dropped the reds -40 and moved the WB a bit 'bluer' and dropped the highlights. Also desaturated since I think it was over-saturation that was lending a 'darkness'. Good thoughts!
And going warm with the WB
Going to the blue side was the wrong way, in the second you're getting there. I haven't calibrated my monitor since the update last week, but the last still has pink overtones. Here's the settings I used
EDIT: Just recalibrated monitor, no change in what I'm seeing.
I think the image looks pretty good, but if you want you could lighten the inside of the pan - so not the entire image - just a tiny bit and brighten (use your curves slider) the orange color a bit. Absolutely no need to start changing color of the fruit, it's fine. And...I sharpened the image slightly.
What lens did you use Peeb?
@Peeb If you don't have one of these, I'd highly suggest getting one. I use mine frequently to double check myself
@Braineack was it your intention to disagree with my edit and if so what part specifically do disagree with?
Was bad; gets the stick
Still looks bad. Look how green everything is now. The wb wasn't a problem in the original shot.
A quick levels adjustment Peeb, raise the midpoint to 1.10 or 1.20 or so.
