    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! MJK_7785_DxO4-small.jpg

    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.

    @Braineack was it your intention to disagree with my edit and if so what part specifically do disagree with?

    Still looks bad. Look how green everything is now. The wb wasn't a problem in the original shot.

    I think the original is just fine.
