Just an idea - I wonder if a little pale pink would take away some of the blue, cool feeling in the white clothes and make it more even or warm it just a tad and also in the face.

I find a good magnifying glass a real help keep control of color correections.

Hi Norm thanks for the tip and I understand where you're coming from. However on this occasion I was actually going for this look particularly as the blue neutralized a rather lousy background. Regards Max
