Colour Casts - most dangerous source yet


Sparks Flying - Photo by Sgt. Michael Pryor

This one has to be the craziest example of a source of a colour cast yet.

A combat engineer with Company A, 325th Special Troops Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, uses a power saw to cut away storefront locks during an early morning raid on suspected sniper positions in Baghdad's Adhamiyah district.

The sparks generated from the saw create an interesting cast, which combines with the indirect light from the sunrise.

This one works as a good example of how colour cast removal, combined with a touch of focus correction, can reveal a great amount of detail. Notice the Corporal's arm on the picture above. Can you see the flag? Notice below. There are more examples, like the Airborne patch. What about elsewhere? The diamond plate hatch? Can you find more of them?

Enjoy.
