I've noticed on some shots taken in the sun there is an orange streak which affects the skin parts. The sun was behind me and to the left and there were no building to cause any reflection. It's on the guy in black, on the face, arms and legs. SOOC and 18-200 mm lens @ 130 mm, f8, 1/1600, ISO 400 and –0.7 EV.

Appreciate any clues.

Cheers

I'm sorry but I don't see anything unusual, might be a problem with your monitor not displaying colors correctly?

Also I've found that the D7000 in vivid mode likes to bring out red in skin tones A LOT. I always have to correct images when someone is sunburned :lol: just because vivid brings the colors out even more.

1st thing I thought was maybe saturation/vivid is set a touch too high in camera, but looking at him, could it be that he hasn't applied sun-screen/block correctly & got burned? (he looks to be fair-skinned/ginger)

Thanks for the tip guys, I fired a few shots today and one was a bird with brown strips on the tail which came out saturated (orange) and brown rocks under water which came out the same. My saturation was set at max +3 so I reduced it by one and will check to see if I need to reduce it more next time I shoot.

The shot posted was no big deal but I had 2 shots in the past that I really wanted and it took a lot of time to try and get it right. PP is not my favourite pastime except for minor adjustments.


Cheers

I'd also check the picture on another monitor if you can. I had the weirdest problems until I moved to a color calibrated IPS display. Every application displayed colors differently (different hues, saturations, brightnesses etc...) It was very frustrating spending time in post exporting a picture and looking nothing like it in a browser, then going back correcting for it, looking decent in a browser, but rubbish in software I used for viewing on my pc...

Fr a fame of reference, I can see the orange streaks on the screen of my first-generation IPad. At normal size, only the streak on his thigh is visible, bt if I enlarge, the rest of them become visible.

Thanks Rex, I’m using an external monitor and I get the same although not as bad on my laptop screen.


Cheers
