I took pictures at a T-ball game at midday. My reds look orange and skin tones were funky red. I understand that this is a horrible time of day for lighting, but thats the game times. I played with various settings including fill flash and getting below hat levels, but then gave up. I tried my best with editing, but ended up going to black and white edits in the end.

I also took pictures of cars at a racetrack at midday times as well. I couldn't get the colors or the contrast right.. Oranges looked weird, and florescent pinks looked red or orange.

Also, @Moose mentioned lightroom software, but its $90. I looked into Adobe Photoshop Elements as well as Adobe Lightroom and the prices were about the same. Which is the best bang for the buck?

    Hi @frandurso,

    First of all, you might want to set the white balance on your camera. It's just not normal that colors would be way off as you experienced.

    The best bang for the buck is It is a free software application that will do most anything you need to do to your pictures, including adjusting hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, sharpness etc. The website is filled with tutorials too.
