The Diner, by Rodger Kingston
The “photographer of the ordinary”, Rodger Kingston, takes an ordinary scene and turns it into a photo essay of life. Take some time to visit his Smugmug page, http://rpkphoto.smugmug.com/, for an extraordinary experience of the ordinary. Rodger has been using iCorrect Portrait to make the color right even though most of his photos do not include people.
Here is the before and after comparison.
Even though iCorrect Portrait was developed primarily to make it easy to fix the color of people, hence the name “portrait”, it is a great tool to quickly correct any photo. With a simple “point and click” interface you can quickly set the white and black points, remove color cast, adjust brightness and contrast, and fix skin tones and memory colors.

Snow is not blue!
Unless you take the time to white balance your camera before taking a photo with snow chances are the snow will have a blue cast and the overall color will be dull. Since I live in Minnesota I end up taking a lot of winter photos and invariably my photos will suffer from the blue cast phenomenon. But, I don’t let it bother me because I have a easy way to make my snow photos look great. I use PictoColor’s iCorrect EditLab Pro Plug-in in either Photoshop or Elements to make the color right. Here is a video tutorial that shows how EditLab Pro works.
