Not sure if this is the right forum for this request or not, but here goes...
the following image was shot at 1/2500 @3.5 aperture priority, white balance..cloudy ISO 200..color mode sRGB on A Nikon D100 with a 70 200 2.8 VR lens. My question how come the red swimsuit is so over saturated with no detail and how can I prevent it and how can I correct it?

Helpless in Florida
Regards,
Dusty

I think it could be a contrast problem. Check you contrast setting in the camera. When I use that lens on my d100 I keep it set at 2.8. And contrast set to normal. Check your color ajustments in the camera also.

Mike, that was the first thing I looked at, everything in that regard is set at normal, this has me perplexed, I thought at first it was overexposure,since I was shooting aperture priority and I think close to the cameras limits for exposure, but then my highlights would have been blown out. Hope to figure it out soon maybe shouldn't have model in red suit [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The reds are not the best when shooting digital. But if I were you I would do a full reset on the camera. It tells you how in the book. Let me know what you find..

You'd probably have more to work with if you shot in RAW and converted to Adobe RGB (and 16 bit files if the D100 supports it.) That would give a lot more data to work with. There's not much to work with in the jpg. However, if you create an adjustment layer for hue and saturation and desaturate just the red by something around -30, it brings some detail.

dam converting it to cmyk pretty much had the bikini between 95-99 percent magenta.

next time just have her take off the bikini to avoid the problem [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Damn ! wish I would have thought of that while I was shooting [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I know! Next time I'll tell them digital shoots right through the red and they might as well take the suit off [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks for trying

Jpeg is fine to shoot in. If you use RAW when shooting Nickie then you will run you into the buffer WALL in no time flat with the way she moves. 4+ frames doesnt do it at all. RAW is fine when you need the absolute control and you dont really know what you color balance is. but shooting on the beach isnt necessarily one of those times. Set your white balance to sunny and go to town in jpeg. You said u set it on cloudy, that would add some warming which may have led to oversat of the red.

I think your biggest problem is you shot in srgb. You really should use Adobe RGB 1998 as it has the largest color gamut. (in other words its collects the most color) Also check your camera to make sure the tone processing is on normal and might as well check the hue adjustment as well.

Did you saturate or adjust the contrast trying to make the colors look better after shooting srgb?? If so that would probably just make the reds more saturated once you got the beach sky and her skin tones right.

Anyways I hope this helps some. Give me a private message if you need more details or have more info on how you shot that day.
