    Krishna I like the image, the off centre presentation woks well, I also like the DOF. At raw stage did you reduce the luminance in yellow, if not I would suggest try it - but gently does it.

    I did not reduce any luminance in yellow.
    I did reduced the saturation of yellows a little
    Why do we need to do that ?

    Does yellows look off to you ?

    Krishna no I don't think they look off but I just have this thing about Nik 30-30, I confess I have used it and I do occasionally but I think it bashes up the pixels.
    It's just a case of what you like and how you like to process but if you reduce luminance in raw and also keep an eye on the blinkies you will see you can get more detail right from the start. It probably only needs a little but if you try it you will see more detail in the yellows. You may also need to check the saturation with the blinkies.
